I looked up Ross' obit just so I could tell you, that when I saw the pictures of him and saw his face, there it was, all that light and wondrous humanity. What a loss for this World - shame!

We have only just learned about Ross's death from his Aunt Kimberly, but had heard the news story in Europe. Stunned, sickened, and saddened to the nth degree over your loss. May the circling wagons of comforting friends continue to support and sustain you.

My heart aches for your family. We spent many a day and a few nights with Boy Scouts or sports together. I admired all your boys. God bless you and hold you in your days of grieving. So sorry I didn't learn of this sooner. Diane Taylor

I am so sorry about your family's loss. I remember when Ross was a baby and stayed in camp while his dad and brothers went canoeing on the Niangua River. My heart goes out to entire family.

We here at the BLM are devastated by his death. We miss him every day. He was a great ambassador for public lands but more importantly he was a great co-worker.
