We are so sad and heartbroken to know that our dear friend, Othea, has passed on. May God bless his soul and give peace and understanding to his family. We enjoyed many hours visiting with O and Agrethia, listening to him play his guitar and hearing them sing together. He and Leslie were airplane r.c. buddies, and O loved to tease Leslie. We miss him.

Well, I have an abundance of dear memories created by Othea & Agrethia. Precious memories that I will cherish the rest of my life. There are too many to share each one. Mexican ( Taco Tuesday’s), singing ( pickin’ & grinnin’), jokes & many laughs, Campground fun (Maggie Valley), and on and on. “O” will be missed by included. I have a peace of heart knowing that he and Agrethia are now together. My heart now has 2 empty areas in it, but....I know I am surrounded by their love daily.
