    My sincere sympathy to Faye Rita and their family. Faye and Otto were just the sweetest couple and a joy to my mom. I remember a long time ago when they came to visit us in Turnertown, Texas how excited Aunt Eunice, uncle Ben, Dotsy and Don would get. We had some good laughs and good times. Otto leaves a legacy of good character and Christian life to his children and friends. I wish I could be with you, my dear cousins, but Isaac requires my full attention here in Biloxi. Sending you prayers for comfort and peace. Love, Dotsy. (Melba)
