  1. Maria and Bobby,
    Your Mom was a lovely lady. She was always so very nice to me and I spent a lot of time in the counseling office, because Elizabeth Otis was my Aunt. She loved you two so very much and everyone she met heard about how wonderful you are. I was able to visit her a few times in the past few years when I have been back to visit Oswego. I will remember her as a very kind person and someone who always made you feel appreciated, loved and encouraged. Those are such great gifts and so rare these days! You and your family will be in my thoughts and prayers. Ted Hanley, Galveston, Texas.
