What can one say about a man who still touches the minds and hearts of so many people over this long span of years?  What qualities make his memory so long-lasting?  

Talent?  Undeniable.  Watch Ross immerse himself in a mind-boggling variety of personas - each a unique, complete and real character.  0bserve the endless subtle (and sometimes not!) nuances of every expression, those luminous eyes that convey a full story without a word, a voice that can go from a soft caress to ice hard in mid word, a slight shift in posture or a tilt of the head that's a master acting class on its own   Add to that musician, artist, poet, athlete and even woodworker!  

Intelligence?  Absolutely.  Fluent in seven languages, scholarship recipient, magna cum laude honors, degrees in business administration, education and law.  His agile mind and quick wit were well on display on the many game shows in which he avidly (and intensely) participated!  Reading any article written about Ross gives one the sense of a most thoughtful, perspicacious and warmhearted man.

Humanity?  That above all.  Ross (known as "one of the softest touches in Hollywood") unstintingly dedicated his time and talents to a vast array of charities, and was integral in founding the first charitable celebrity tennis tournaments.

And these are but a few of the traits that made up a remarkable man.  In developing this site, I've come to a deeper appreciation of Ross's impressive body of work; Ross entertained me then and he's delighting me still.  I've been lucky enough to meet and express my gratitude to many childhood favorites for the entertainment and enrichment they brought to my life.  Sadly, I never met Ross; he's "the one who got away".  So, with a great deal of admiration, respect and affection, this is my way of saying "thank you".
