  1. Dear Osborn family, Please accept my deepest sympathy for the loss of your dear loved one. It seems no greater sadness is felt than when someone so dear to us is loss. May you find comfort in your memories and draw strength from a promise God has provided which gives the hope of someday being reunited with your beloved ( John 5 : 28,29 ). This promised future is one that will be filled with great joy because it will include perfect health and everlasting life on a paradise earth where ” the former things have passed away ” ( Rev. 21 : 4, Psalms 37 : 29 ). May you find comfort in knowing that God does care and He does hear our cries. Please accept my most sincere condolences.

  2. I sure will miss Mr. Osborne’s visits to our office! One of the nicest men I’ve ever met! Hugs!

  3. Jeffery, Denise and Family, So sad to hear about the passing of Mr. Carlton. He was such a fine man!! He always had a smile, and a very humble, Christ-like, attitude, putting others before himself. He was one of the hardest working men I’ve ever met, but I never heard him complain. Please except my sincere condolences, and may God comfort you during this sad time.

    My love and sympathy go out to each and every family member. Brother Carlton was a kind and loving husband, father, and friend. When my deceased husband, Ron Trawick, was pastor of Indian Creek, I remember how this family supported their church. I know Carlton is rejoicing in Heaven with the Jesus he loved and his family and loved ones that are welcoming him home. God bless you all.
