Dear Dot, Jackie, and Debbie,
So sorry to hear of Jacks passing. Jason and I were reminiscing about old times in Griggstown. One of th things we spoke about was our trip Montouk, remember the paintingsof the ship Jack painted on Danny's chest he still talks about Uncle Jack's painting a tattoo on him. I got our the album of Oz's and mine 25 Anniversary , our cruise to the Caribbean . What a good time we had. Jason and I will try to come up Friday, but Thursday I have a Doctors appointment I have to keep.Love to you all and hope to see you soon.
God's Riches Blessing on your future.....Patt and Jason Osworth
