  11. My thoughts and prayers to the family. Aunt Cindy and Rose, I can only imagine how it feels to lose a child and brother. Ross was called by God at a young age to be in heaven with his dad, Uncle Charlie.

    I will always remember holding Ross as a baby, and, as he grew, playing with him in the back yard between the trees of the family home, memories that I will treasure for ever…he will be missed but never forgotten.

    I pray that God will soon lessen your pain so that what you are left with are the wonderful memories of Ross.

    With much love,
