So sorry for your loss. I have many memories of Ozema, his siblings, & parents. Those were in the days when we all visited each other on the weekends. We spent many hours playing outside, which kids don’t do a lot of today. We all knew our aunts, uncles, & cousins well. However, not many of us are left. Condolences to the family during this sad time of grief.
Sincerely, cousin, Cheryl (Burge) McGarrahan

I was saddened to hear of his passing. I dont remember when he wasn't a part of my MawMaw Jeanette and PawPaw Allen's (Malone) life. All the stories and fun times. I just know they were always around each other and laughing alot. May he rest in peace now and prayers for his family.

Ozema’s “Junk Yard Brothers” ! Only thing missing in this pic is Ozema. Vinton will never be as clean with these 3 no longer around to pick up Junk, especially along I-10.

Ozie has been a lifelong friend of our family. I can’t remember a time before him. He was always funny and lively. He left a lasting impression wherever he went. He will be missed.❤️
