I am so saddened to hear of Ozzy's passing. So sudden and heartbreaking to lose him at such an early age. My heart goes out to the family and all his close friends and from what I have read he sure did have a lot. I had not seen him in quite some time only to run into him occasionally while shopping. Please watch over your family and may you rest in peace. Sending hugs, love and prayers to Beth, his children and grandchildren that they can get through their loss and pray that each day gets easier.
