My husband Bob and I were just reminiscing and I was sharing much about my wonderful Wayne Street neighbors of which your family was a big part. Reaching out to my 4 remaining siblings one forwarded me this sad news of Mr. Ross’s passing. Please know that your family is being lifted up in prayer for comfort during this very sad time. While the hope of seeing all our loves ones again in Heaven is so wonderful, the pain of your loss still stings right now so very very much. Please also know that your grief is shared by so many who love you. In deepest sympathy, Gail (Jantsch) Stashick
