The Family Tribute
Come, ye disconsolate, where’er ye languish,
Come to the mercy seat, fervently kneel.
Here bring your wounded hearts, here tell your anguish;
Earth has no sorrow that heaven cannot heal.

I would like to express my deepest condolence to the Rodney Ramseur Family. It is my prayer that God will grant you peace and comfort at this most difficult time. June as we all knew him by was one of the kindest, most thoughtful, and caring persons you could ever encounter. I was always so impressed by how he would make sure that you saw and spoke to his wife whenever you greeted him.

Uncle June. ( I didn't realize he was not my real uncle until I was twelve years old.) Heaven has truly welcomed an Angel. I have known June all my life; his children were and are some my best friends and cousins. June was a true gentleman, a wonderful and loving father, a great provider and above all, a Christian. A very quiet, but powerful man, he possessed the talent of being able to say so much with so few words and in doing so, you knew that he was saying was exactly what he meant. He loved his Family and his Family loved him. Family, please take comfort in knowing June has gone to the place for which he lived his life.

With all our love and sympathy, Sam Rose, Thom Bell and Mike Rose
