It has been a number of years since I have seen you all but was speaking with Ross only a couple of weeks ago and remembering many of the great times I had as a young boy on the farm with all of you. I will never forget him. He was a true man of God. I can still remember his grace at meal time... "Our gracious God we have sinned aginst thee and are unworthy of these thy mercies. Pardon our sins and Bless this food we pray..." It was always the same but at the same time very impactful. I know that each of you will be missing him in diferent ways but that all of you have the assurance that he has passed through the veil and is now with Mom in heaven. Can't you hear her greeting him and telling him about all that heaven is about! What a time for rejoicing. I will be praying for God's blessing on each of you as you celebrate dad's Graduation Service! He is now reaping his reward with his maker. I really enjoyed looking at the pictures that you have posted on the site. There are some really special memories in each one of these. Doug Humphries

Uncle Ross was a very special person in my life-I shall treasure the chats and the times I spent with him, his sense of humour and will always remember his laugh. My thoughts are with you--

— Kaye Snowe, June 10, 2013

A God-fearing and gentle man, Ross McDougall is sorely missed by a loving family who grew up under his wise, and often good-humoured, guidance. The love his children have for their father is outshone only by the love he showed and gave to them. Witnessing such a genuinely humble and caring man enriched everyone's life whom he touched. It is an honour to have known such an admirable character. May God bless his grieving family with the peace and comfort of knowing that Ross lead a long and fruitful life, and that someday we shall all meet again.
