    Our deepest condolences to all of the Ross family. Our family was Ray’s next store neighbor for 35 years. Ray always had a warm greeting and loved to chat whether it would be neighborhood gossip or town or national politics. He always had an interesting list of facts. He was so proud of his daughters and grandchildren and spoke of you often.

    He was a great neighbor and we will miss him. May he rest in peace.

    Sincerely,
    George, Ellen, Sarah & Patrick Leonard
