Jinx, Dave, Terry, I will always remember the fun times spent addition to the snowy days when your dad would warm us up with a sip of a Tom & Jerry! To date it is a recipe that I cherish. I recently went through some old pictures and found many of our folks doing what they enjoyed most. Perhaps now they can do so again! My thoughts and prayers are with you and Shirley. Sincerely, Jodie

“Dear Jinx, Terry, and Dave: Our sympathy goes out to you on this sad occasion. We both have so many memories of earlier times around the pool, on the baseball fields, and eating those famous burgers, coney dogs, and chips for lunch after a hard day at the ball park. There, watching over all of this was your dad, cigar in one hand, a bottle of beer in the other, and the greatest tan this side of the beaches of California. It is a memory we shall cherish. He was a good man and great father! Larry & Rita Davsko

Dear Jinx, Terry, and Dave, So sorry to hear about your dad. He was a huge part of my life growing up on Osborn and I will always have fond memories of all of you. I ran into him a couple of years ago and we had a really nice visit. You are all in my thoughts and prayers.
