    There’s so many things that I can say about this old man. “He loved me to call him that” My condolences goes out to Michelle and family. Your dad was my client for 4 years it was such a pleasure to have him. Mr.Ransom kept me laughing and he was always in good spirits which I will miss the most about him. I thank god that he gave me 4 yrs that I got to share with Mr.Ransom he had became apart of my family. Me and my children will definitely miss that old man;)

  2. Audrie says:

    Darfus was the only father I ever known. MICHELLE is my little sister. He was always so upbeat and full of joy and laughter whenever I would call and talk to him. He never ever asked for much even though he didn’t get around too much. He was always willing to give and help someone else and was considerate of all. I miss him so much but I feel forever Blessed to have had him in my life and although he was my stepdad he was really my Father, my Dad and I’ll never forget him he’ll be a part of my life always.
