Linda & family,
Never thought that when I asked about Mrs. Ozie at church Sunday that it would be the last time that I could ask about her. She was a great lady and I always enjoyed talking with her at church. Our sympathy goes out to the whole family.

Mrs. Linda and family,
I have been remembering Mrs. Ozie today. I can still remember her in our Sunday school class the very first day telling us that if we didn't remember her name it was "OK" and we could just call her "OK". That little joke always stuck with me. She was always so kind to me and I enjoyed her so. I pray God's peace will be with you in the days ahead.
