Very sorry for your loss. Thoughts and prayers for the family.
Praying for the family during this time. So sorry for your loss.
John Mark and family, So sorry for your loss. May the Lord be with you and comfort you.
Very sad to hear of the loss of your Dad. He was a fine man, much respected and loved by his family and the community.
It was my privilege to assist with the care of Kathleen, and then Caston. I didn't know Mr. Ramsey long, but he stole my heart, and the hearts of all those who knew him. In the time that I knew him, it was evident that what he loved more than anything in this world was his family, especially Kathleen. He spoke of those he loved with such affection. He was a kind and gracious man, with an absolute heart of gold. He seemed to have lived a life where he worked hard, and loved harder. Deepest condolences to his family during this very difficult time. All I have met have been as kind and as gracious as he was. The apples didn't fall far from the tree. It was my honor to have known him. My family and I will be praying for you all.
