Jenn CondonThoughts and prayers go to whole Ross family. Gord's presense will be missed tremendously at the front desk of Byron Family Medical Centre. It was always smiles when he came through the door, with much laughter to follow. Miss you already Gordie. Rest in Peace dear friend.
Reg SelbyGord, your passing has left a pain in my heart,and a deep saddness in my soul. I will miss our chats and visits. Gord could light up a room with his beautiful smile and always had a way of looking at the bright or positive side of everything.. Gord was a very dear friend, a person i could converse with so easy. Gord was my mentor, advisor,and when ever Gord spoke, you knew it was coming from his heart. To Patsy, Debbie,Nancy, Gord jr., Tim and all their families, You are all in my prayers, I lost a dear friend, but you lost your " DAD", i KNOW HOW PRECIOUS HE WAS TO EACH OF YOU. The Lord will carry you through your sorrow, in time your pain will ease, but the memories will be with you forever. I want to make sure that i did not forget Gords passion. Gord loved to bring his ladies {as he called them} flowers. His face would beam when he would tell me that it was flower day .Gord, I am going to miss you beyond words can say .See you in Heaven buddy.

Suzanne Glasgow I will miss my dear, sweet, lovable friend, Gord....alias "Old Fart" (meant with respect and endearment and a chuckle of course) and my walks down to see you for a friendly smile, a nice chat, and lots of laughter and kidding around. It was nice to just sit and have a beer and a friendly, fun visit. I appreciated you sharing the history of our farm. I hope that no one is after your wallet up in heaven my friend. Those angels you spoke of quite often captured you.....one of them must have been pretty!!! I was always happy to share my flowers with you so you could cheer someone up or make someone's day a little happier when you showed up with that handsome smile of yours and a bouquet. To the Ross kids.....I know and saw by example how much you love your father. He felt happy and well supported by all of you and that meant the world to him. You should be proud of all that you did for him. He clearly returned your love and appreciated you. I am truly sorry for your great loss and I share your sadness. I will really miss you Gord.

Ross FamilyTo Everyone reading and leaving messages here. On behalf of the Ross Family Many thanks to all who visited Dad, the great neighbours he had around him, those who called him, brought him food, did little jobs for him, sent flowers, made donations and came to say their last farewell. It was a sad couple of days but with the stories and memories told to us it made it so much easier to handle the passing of our Father. Yes Dad will be greatly missed by all but our love for "Big Gord" will keep us strong. Patsy, Debbie, Nancy, Gord Jr. Tim and our families.
