  • I was his neighbor for a number of years. We didn’t interact much but I’d often hear him sitting out on his porch singing what I think was “My Own Worse Enemy” by Lit. Which I would say meant he had good taste in music. So sorry that this happened.

  • Dear Marilyn, Ernie and Chad,
    I am so sorry for your loss. Ozzie made me smile and he will be missed. May God comfort you. Mary Lou

  • On behalf of your biological mother, Mary Stroud Smith, she asked me to write a few words. Her heart is broken from your loss. She may have not been the mother you had hoped her to be but never did she not love you . She finds solace knowing you are in Heaven and that you will meet again one day in Paradise. You will always be loved, always be missed and always be her Baby Boo…
