Dear Family and Friends,

In looking back, the past century has been very good to me. I have been blessed with a loving family. As I reflect on my parents, I am thankful that I was born to such a loving pair. My husband, Hector, two children, four grandchildren and one great grandchild have brought me much happiness.
        I am thankful that I have been blessed with good health, as I have been able to enjoy many experiences. My academic pursuits at Wooster College, University of Southern California and business school in New York provided me with a superb education and opened up many other avenues. My curiosity in others has taken me to such places as Germany, Ireland, Scotland, Italy as well as China at the ripe age of 88.  My legs have also treated me well, as I was able to stay active through golf, bowling, fishing and other activities. My love for people gave me the opportunity to socialize with friends through many clubs.  
        I have been fortunate to have two successful careers, as a teacher and executive. I had the privilege of teaching many children from various backgrounds and I loved every minute. Hec and I had wonderful experiences building Ross Iron and Tank from the ground up. My various job duties ranged from book keeping, secretarial, semi driver, sales negotiator, and vice president. Each experience introduced me to many fine people and expanded my knowledge base beyond belief.  

Who could ask for more?
Faye Ross
