He was a neighbor to my Mama Reese for years and he always watched over her and she in turn ravished them with home made goodies. He was known by me and other and had a nick name of "Pretty Legs". After my mother Jane Ross died he came over and brought some of the best home made bread I had ever eaten. I will miss him, like I missed his family. But, to live in hearts that's left behind is one of the prizes that awaits us. I wish I could be there, better yet I wish I had some of that bread...Johnny Ross and Ross Family...

I'm so sorry for your loss. For a while, when I worked at Craig, your Dad was Supervisor on the line where I worked. He was well respected by all the crew I worked with. I never saw him lose his temper or be unkind to anyone. Over the years, I've talked to him when he came in to vote, in the precinct where I work, and also at the Senior Center. All who knew him will miss him. God bless you all.

I am remembering when Dad built your Dad's house way back when and he loved your family. We just buried my Dad (Jack Bell) and he commented many times through the years about how much he loved all of you and watched you grow up. Please know my Mom and I are praying for your family and know this is a very hard time for all of you. Please accept our deepest sympathy. Love Sharon and Berneda
