Ross, ever since Wednesday when my plane landed in DC and I turned m,y cell phone back on and my cell phone started blowing up with text messages from Troopers telling me that you had died, I have felt like I have been punched in the stomach. I still can't believe that we had just talked on Monday and that you agreed to play TAPS at our annual Candlelight Memories Vigil on Tuesday, December 3rd. You were so excited and honored to ba able to play TAPs as a way to honor the fallen and now instead you will be one of the fallen. The half hour talk we had just sharing different things in common and getting to know each other, I feel like I have lost a close firend. I have already started hearing some great stories about you from your coworkers. Just know that you, your family, and coworkers are in my thoughts and prayers.
