I will be thinking of you, Sharon, and your family as you say your final good--byes to Tom. It was my pleasure to have met you and Tom at our Sulphur Springs Church summers. He was one fine gentleman and I am sure you have many precious memories and they will help you through this time of loss. Love and prayers, Norma Lawrence

So sorry for your loss. Dr. Osborn was my families and myself's doc when I was a kid. He was a great person who always took the opinion of the patient into consideration and was always in a great mood, even joking with patients and putting the kids at ease when they were in for appointments and such.

He will be truly missed by all that knew him, friend and patient alike.

Kim, My sympathies go to you and your family. We'll have to talk sometime about Sacketts Harbor. My grandparents had land and kept a boat there. They were big fishermen. All the best. Elizabeth Sager Metz
