    Rana Ross Memorial


    A message from the family of Rana Ross...

    As many of you know, Rana Ross passed yesterday.
    Despite how you
    may
    now her
    (as a writer, a musician, a friend, a business
    associate)
    http://www.bassgirl.com/, she was so much more than that. She
    leaves
    behind
    her husband John Ross, her mother Anne St.
    George, her sister Reesa
    St.
    George and brother-in-law Bill Cuffari, her aunt
    and
    uncle, Louisa and Ted Klopsis, and cousin
    Eugenia Klopsis.
    She was a great bass player. But More than all
    of that, she was a
    Brooklyn girl from way back - tough, cool, she had this
    voice that would
    knock
    your
    socks off... oh, she was the best.... you know
    that, though.

    This is an invitation to Rana's memorial
    service. Please contact me
    if you
    need further information give us a call (please
    don't e-mail about
    the
    service unless phoning is out of the question)
    and please forward
    this to
    whomever you think would be interested to come.
    She was our best friend. We loved her
    completely. Now we know she
    doesn't
    need anything else. She is free.

    Rana was and still is in our eyes a SUPER person
    who has been
    incredibly
    strong for many years. She is talented, intelligent, amazing,
    awesome, and
    every descriptor and superlative that can be
    thought of. She was
    always
    a very
    strong figure in our lives as far as we can
    remember. She was
    working on
    her first solo cd for some time now and was very
    appreciative of
    the
    gestures her
    producer, Jeff Moleski, made as he basically
    moved his studio into
    her house
    and committed to work on her cd with her at her
    own pace until
    completion.

    Rana will be missed completely by so many people
    who recognized her
    beauty,
    worth, talent and spirit. This is such a GIANT
    void in our lives
    that we
    can't even begin to work through. We're hoping
    that all of you
    will
    have a
    chance to visit us and let us know in what way
    she influenced your
    lives.
