    Sad to say Ross has Passed. Last Friday the 16th of September 2022. His Wife Rose said:
    Chris, I am sorry to say that Ross passed away Sept 16. After a year long battle with cancer he passed peacefully. Ross's wife, Rose, is sending you this message.
    I have Chatted with him over the Years but never met him, and when he put up the ad for Husky Parts I told him I would Buy them All! That was in March. I was going to get them in person in late July when I was going to Montana to check out some Property my Brother and I bought, but found out that you needed to be Vaccinated to get into Canada!! I am Not Vaccinated and Never Will Be!!
    So I called 50 or so people up there and finally found Owen who owns Valley Pallet Plus. He went to Ross' place and Picked up the parts. Ross was in the hospital so his wife Rose, Told him what to take. The parts are crated and waiting for export now! What a PITA!! I told Rose that We are Praying for Him and Her! I'll see you on the other side Ross!!:( Chris
