Dear Gramp,
Life just won't be quite the same here without you, but we love that you are reunited with Gram, and we know that she is overjoyed to have her "Ozzie" by her side once again.
All of us Grandkids are so lucky. We have endless memories....ones that most kids only dream of. See you again one day...give Gram a kiss from us.
We all love you, so very much.


Condolence & Memory Journal

I remember Ozzie from the McCormick Agency in 1959 through 1967. I might be the only one left from that group. It was always a pleasure to know Ozzie.
