My thoughts and prayers are with your family. Mrs. Ross, as my brother Jeff and I called Monta, was our babysitter for many many years growing up. She took great care of us and was every bit a part of our family. I have lots of great memories from my childhood that include Mrs. Ross. She was a caring, strong and fantastic lady.
