My sincere condolences go out to the entire family. I personally knew Ross for about 15 years, he was a very good friend and wonderful person. He became my mentor with softball affiliated items. Two things are for certain: #1 We as humans lost a wonderful person who will be missed greatly and #2 God has gained one great angel in his family. RIP my friend, until we meet again.
