Happy Transition Day! We went to the cemetery today and then to lunch at Singing Hills. It was a tough day for me, but I often thank God that I have so many great reasons to miss you so much. I hope that you and Tootsie took a good bike ride today.
Oh Rambo.....I miss you so much...I love this family so much. Lynda and Karrie are doing good. They both miss you too..so much...more than you'll ever know. I was outside doing some work that we did together..I miss you!!! I know your in a happy place. I will keep every promise I made to you...I love you Rambo....
Happy Birthday Dad!
We just got back from seeing your girl, Amy Grant. You and I talked in February about kicking cancer and celebrating your birthday with Amy Grant.... You probably had a better seat than we did.
And, by the way, I ordered the Tiramisu; but was brought carrot cake. I figured that was your way of letting us know you love us still.
Love you Dad!
You know of course Im writing this with a smile and tears. I just love you all. Pete is amazing, not was, but is...so burly yet such a teddy bear. You are all family to us and because of our relationship with Christ you always will be OUR FAMILY!!! I am sure my mom, your best friend, is filling Pete in on everything there is for him to catch up on... she's good like that ya know. Pete's probably like "oh no, where's BOB?" HAHA. Lynda, I love you like a mom, Karrie and Melinda you know I love you both youre my sisters. Im only a call away any time of day or night Im here to talk or listen or hang out. ALL MY LOVE> MARNIE DUFF HUTCHERSON and family
Happy Memorial Day weekend. We went to the Memorial Day ceremony on the Midway this morning. They talked about all the guys who didn't make it home, but I thought about guys like you who did make it home with scars. The kind of scars that don't show. The ones that are deep inside because of the atrocities of war and watching some of your best friends die. That is another kind of life sacrifice.
Thanks for serving, Dad, and helping to keep our country free and safe. I know you were only in the Army for a few years, but you served for the rest of your life.
Today is May 18. It was a big anniversary date for you. On May 18, 1966, you landed in Vietnam. On May 18, 1967, you left Vietnam and told yourself "Nothing will ever be as bad a Vietnam." That day, you arrived home and went to Tijuana with your buddy John Whittingham on his new motorcycle. On the way home, John plowed into the back of a Tijuana police car. John was thrown over the police car, and you were burned by the exploding gas tank. Somehow you returned to the United States and spent months at Balboa Naval Hospital in a full body cast. You drank apple juice because that was the only thing that tasted good. Your parents paid for you to have your own tv, so you didn't have to watch what the other guys in the ward were watching. And this cute little thing named Lynda would visit you and tease you about tickling your feet with a feather.
I hope if you and John are cruising around heaven right now, that you're doing the driving!
I got Mom to your funeral on time.
Pete, I miss you so much. I hope you are doing well up in Heaven. I am glad I have you as my Guardian Angel. I love you and miss you, Siham
Dear Osborn family, Pete was a very thoughtful, kind person. We are sincerely grateful to have known him. Love, Rick and Julie Medlock/SD Zoo
To Lynda and the Osborn family, my family and I want you to know how much Pete and you mean to us and he will be truly truly missed. Our families have known each other for some 40 years and have been through a lot over the years. We will be here for you. If anyone knows Pete, they know how much he loved his family, friends and of course his dogs. He would want all of us to be strong and get through this together. I will never forget the times we spent at the ranch swimming and eating those awesome tacos you would make Lynda. You guys are a special part of our family and we love all of you. Love you too Pete.
Lynda, Karrie, Melinda and family
We were so sorry to hear of Pete's passing. Now he is in no more pain. You have many fond memories to cherish.
Bev and Larry Horn
My heart goes out to Pete's wife, kids & the entire Osborn family. Pete was quiet but so interesting to listen to due to his unique life. Rest now Pete.
With deepest sympathy. During this time of sadness, may fond memories soothe your spirit and comfort you. Pete was a very special person and will be missed by all. Wishing you peace of heart.
Our condolences to all the family. Pete's suffering is now over and he is in a better place.
I always remember Pete quiet and at the same time very funny time many times. I have a lot of fun and happy memories during the time of camping at the Colorado River to now. You will be missed my I know deep in my heart you are in a better place. Watch over us my dear friend. And love and prayers to my cousin Lynda and family.
I am so sorry to hear. I didn't know Pete well, but as Sue Osborn's sister, I remember him at many gatherings. Praying for God's peace and comfort to rest on all the family. Hugs.
May God hold your family in the palm of his hand and surround you with loving peace and beautiful memories of such a special man. I was blessed to have known Pete Osborn. XO XO
So sorry to hear that a true individualist has left this life. We have warm memories of visiting with you & Pete when my brother JR came down from Northern California to visit Pete's family, especially his mother. When we were invited to your home it was a real treat for us! It was so obvious that Pete enjoyed the warm home you both created and loved the challenges of his beautiful life in the country with the wild things!
God bless you, Lynda. May He bring to your mind many, many happy memories of your life together. May the promise of Heaven be more and more real.
Dear Lynda, Our hearts sorrow at the loss of a true individualist. We have delightful memories of visiting with you and Pete a few years ago when my brother JR came down from Northern California to be at one of Pete's family gatherings. It was so obvious how much Pete enjoyed the warm home you created together and enjoyed the challenge of having life in the country.
Lynda, we're praying that God will indeed fill your heart with many happy remembrances of your life together, and may the hope of a great Reunion bring strength to your heart.
