Jeanette was a childhood friend and schoolmate. I remember her with much pleasure and enjoyed visiting in her home with "Miss" Ocie and family. I am sorry I am not in town to be with you this weekend. Love and sympathy to the family.

We will always remember Mrs. Osborne as a very sweet and caring lady, mom and grandmother. I spent alot of teen and early adult years with Tim and all of us (friends) would be at his house hanging out and his mom would be there laughing and enjoying us as much as we enjoyed her. She was definitely one of the "Cool" Moms. It has been a few years since seeing her, but she always greeted us with a hug and a smile. I know she will be missed by all.
