I was so sorry to hear about Osa. I remember our many good times at Crittenden Baptist. I was so sorry when your family left. I just texted Alisa about coming to the funeral home tonight, the 6th. She told me I had the wrong date. I am so sorry to have missed the visitation and funeral. May God bless and keep you during this time. I know Osa is rejoicing being with our Lord and Saviour.
