    Sharon, Allan, Kathy and families:

    My thoughts and prayers are with you.
    I did visit your dad in the hospital last week. He seemed comfortable and
    at peace. He still had that sparkle in his eyes and his smile brought back memories of his sense of humor that we were drawn to as children and young adults. He was a great Uncle.

  3. My apologies for this delayed condolence, however I only heard the news today. Ossie and Shirley were my cherished neighbors in Tuxedo for 4 years. I have very fond memories of having a cold beer in the back yard on a hot summer day with Ossie; and of sharing a Tea and good conversation with Shirley at their kitchen table. Ossie and Shirley were two very special people and became guardian angels in looking out for me. I will always hold a place in my heart for the two of them. My belated condolences to Sharon and the rest of the clan.
    Dwight (and Tanya) Ross
