Dear Ott family: So sorry to hear of your loss. I am personally comforted by what the apostle Paul says at 1 Corinthians 15:26: "As the last enemy death is to be brought to nothing." I look forward to that time and when we will see our loved ones again. (Acts 24:15)

I am sorry to hear that Joe is gone. I was a pen pal with him last year from the Antwerp School. I still have his letters in my bedroom. I thought he was a really great guy and I liked hearing about his life.

Dear Chuck,

So sorry to learn of your Father's death....he was among the County's finest businessmen and I'll remember him fondly. Always a class act; soft spoken and possessing a genuine smile. He always had great posture too...reflecting on the many times I'd see him walking to and from his office at the Payne Coop to his and your Mother's home on West Merrin Street. You are a chip off the old block Chuck and that is a very sincere compliment.

Extending our sympathy....
