To the River's family,
Valerie and I send our sincerest sympathies to you all over Ross's passing. He was truly a Maquoketa icon and he has left his mark on the Maquoketa community. The River's family has played such a part in our Maquoketa experience. Ross and Vivian spent many hours in our office relating their stories and Ross always had a new idea in mind. I spent countless hours with him while building Ohnward and enjoyed his stories about Maquoketa history. Know that you are all in our thoughts and prayers in the days ahead.
