  1. Jerry, JoAnn & Kevin,
    Was sorry to here of Bud’s passing. You guys were a big part of a young man’s life and I never felt unwelcome when we were terrorizing the Amber Acres. Jerry I always mention you when I am bragging on the baseball “glory days”. Your dad & mom were always our biggest fans and that was and still is greatly appreciated and I just wanted to let you know that my thought and prayers are with you guys today. May God hold you close in the coming days.

  2. JoAnn, Jerry & Kevin, I am sorry for your loss. I wanted you to know that Bud was a great Softball coach and We (Gene & Myself) had a wonderful time playing for Bud, and playing alongside of Jerry, Kevin for many years. Our Prayers are with All.

  3. Dear Osborne family,
    At this time of grief and pain I hope you’ll accept my condolence and deep regrets for your loss and I’d like to share where I found help at such a time as this when this enemy death took my entire family. I found much comfort and hope in what I read in Jehovah Gods word the Bible at John5:28,29 for there it tells us we’ll see our love ones again in the resurrection when Jesus brings them back here on earth and Isaiah25:8 states that this enemy death will be swallowed up forever. With these scriptures and others I’m able to cope with my loss and get through each day because now I know I’ll see my love ones again and so can you. I wanted to share this with you at this time when hope and comfort is needed in hopes that this will help you also in some way for this is my purpose in sharing this with you at this time and please know that I do share your grief and hope you’ll feel free to let me know if I accomplished my purpose. I hope to hear from you.
    Sincerely, GM
