The children of Floyd and Maxie Green send their love to the Ramsey family. Our parents were dear friends with W. C. and Ethelyne for many years. Robert and Charlotte loved seeing Mrs. Ramsey when she lived at Brookdale Assisted Lining in Northport. We all praise God for rewarding His precious daughter with heavenly residence. We live you Mrs. Ramsey!
