I just happened to read about Mrs. Ross' passing. My condolensces to all of her family. She was one of my cottage mom's at Riverside and had given me a necklace. She was always encouraging to me to walk with the Lord. She was a believer and I just recently lost my mom on the 10th of Sept. I know her and my mom are both fellowshipping with each other right now praising the Lord!! Shalom
