Dear Chandy and family We were so sorry to hear of OJ’s passing last Thursday. We were unaware of this until late Sunday & missed his service & are so sorry for that. We do have many good memories of O.J. & his sense of humor with Tom O’Grady & their adventures! He loved his family very much and will be sorely missed by them and friends. Sharon & Larry
