  • Caleb Heer Posted February 13, 2020 12:23 am

    Ransom, I remember when we were younger and I used to visit you after school. We’d do some pretty dumb stuff and god at the memories man. Of all people I least expected you. You were a good friend and an even better brother. Your wisdom will last a lifetime and then some. I miss you and I wish I would’ve kept in contact but life got busy and we both grew into our own settings. I only hope youre looking down upon us watching over us in our time of grief. The world lost an soul and heaven gained the best brother anyone could’ve ever asked for

  • Nancy Latu Posted February 14, 2020 1:14 am

    The CPI family where his step-mother, Dawn Anderson, works is devastated by this news. He was too young and had such a future ahead of him. We will never understand why until we see him when it is our turn to see the light. All the best to the family.

  • Kellie Posted February 15, 2020 10:28 am

    So sorry for your loss. Can’t imagine your pain&sorrow. Ransom was a bright light in a world of darkness. He was always polite&respectful any time I had an interaction with him. Sometimes our Lord calls his angels back to heaven even if we don’t understand why. Guardian Angel perhaps?
    Prayers for your family in this most difficult of times.
    Gone but Never Forgotten
