I lived three doors from your dad when we were in grade and high school. He carried me home on his shoulders when my shoes hurt so bad I could not walk. I was 9 and he was about 13. He and Wes Hargreaves were my friends. I am shocked and saddened to learn of his passing.

Dearest Doug, Betsy, Scott, and Chris:

There are no words that can express the sorrow I feel over the loss of your Dad. He was a very special man, loving, caring and a very loyal and true friend. So many wonderful memories of you Mom and Dad will always be with me. They were both very special to Ted and me and I miss them dearly.

My Love and Blessings and Very Deepest Sympathy.

My name is George Ralph Ramsayer. I am your fathers cousin, son of Herbert and Helene Ramsayer. Although we were never close (your Dad and his brother Don were a bit older than me and my siblings) I was very sorry to hear of his passing. The few times we did meet as adults, were very pleasant and his warm and outgoing personality were obvious. The last meeting was in the early 90's at my fathers house in Alliance. My condolences to you and your family.

Having the same (uncommon) name as another person can lead to some interesting moments. I remember in college hitchhiking from Wooster Ohio back to college at Denison and being picked up by a Cleveland banker. A few miles down the road he asked me my name and became very upset when I told him. He said he knew George Ramsayer and I wasn't him!

Again, my condolences to you and your family.

Dear Ramsayers,
I am sorry to learn of your father's passing. I have clear memories of him as a teen and young adult. As his younger cousins, the Ramsayers of Alliance were very impressed! His reaching out to us at the deaths of our parents was very appreciated. It sounds like he was a fine man and wonderful father. I wish you comfort in this difficut time.

Chris, Scott, Doug and Betsy,

I think the world of you all. Although I don't see you often, I know that I aspire to be more like my Mom's side of the family. Your genuineness and your warm spirited core are beautiful. Thanks for making my Mom a very proud and grateful Aunt. She adores you and is always there. God bless!

our dog always loved Papa. When he and Grandma came up to visit she would be the first one out the door to receive whatever toy he brought her. It was always demolished in minutes. One thing I remember about Papa was Sam's Club muffins. We sung a song we made up called "Papa the Muffin Man" when we were waiting for the white cadillac. When they had to go I always cried. When we learned of Papa's passing, we went out for chocolate malts. They weren't as god as his.

Dear Doug, Betsy, Chris, Scott, Grandchildren, and Linda,

My thoughts and prayers are with you daily. I remember George as a wonderful brother-in-law, husband, father, and grandfather. I spent many hours under his tutelage and I was always a rapt audience! He was a terrific athlete and spent much time teaching his family sports, card games, and life lessons. Everyone was a winner!! I will miss him dearly.

Much love,

Aunt Heidi

My prayers and thoughts are with all of you during this time of loss. Most of my growing up years were spent across the street from the Ramsayers. We were privileged to know George, Carolyn and their entire family. May God bless you comfort your hearts.

"I was thinking what a great uncle George was when I was growing up. Every summer he happily took me into his home and made me part of the family. He taught me alot about competition, being humble in victory, and acting mature. I will truly miss him."

"Dad was an awesome Dad. His greatest joys came from family and most recently his grandchildren. From as early as I recall, he passed along his love of games & sports. He taught us all to play hard and fair. I look forward to our next hand of cards."
