I worked at CFW with Mr. Ramsey. He was a great role leader in his employment. He was a positive influence in the work place. It was always nice to have him come by our office with morning greetings and his kindness stood out to everyone who knew him. Even though he was retired, if you spoke of Mr. Ramsey it was always with great respect. My condolences to his wife and family. To me he was an amazing gentleman.
