I was so sorry to hear about Uncle Ott's passing. He will surely be missed. We now live in Florida and will not make it back home for the service. However each of you are in my thoughts and prayers.

I really hated to hear of Little Ott's passing but we know he is a happy fellow now he is with his beloved wife Ruby. I know he had a chance to visit with Mom in the hospital and she was happy to see him they laughed and talked about old times. Time go so fast cherish your time together and remember the good times. He is having a big family reunion with all the ones that have gone on before him (growing more and more ). Please know that you all are in our thoughts and prayers.
Love you all.
