for those who knew Rana and would like to pay respect to a beautiful person 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. where: 442 south ogden (park la brea) home of Marie-Laure Bastide when: Tuesday may 6th 6pm from 6pm-10pm ish contact: susan 323.251.9025 or reesa 203.482.5344 if you have trouble with security at the gate, please tell them you are there for the Bastide party (give the address).
