Dear Barbara, Marty, Cathy and the whole Ross clan, Rich and I send our condolences to you on the loss of your mother. I met your mother only a few times in my youth but I remember that she was an amazingly strong religious woman who loved to ride her bike and ran a tight ship. She and your father left a remarkable legacy in their eight children and without a doubt they are very proud of each and every one of you. We share your loss of such an amazing woman and we know you will laugh together remembering the good memories of your mother Ann.
Please accept our sympathies,
Mary Anne and Richard Katz
