I really don't know what brought me to this site. I guess while I was watching, I got to thinking about how life has really changed since my childhood and how we all had so much fun watching all the old time programs. One of my favorites was watching the Ozzie and Harriet show. Life was so much better back in the 50's and 60's I know you can't stop progress but for me, those years in my life were the happiness and when David passed away, a part of my happiness died with him but I will...

I just loved that show when I was a kid. David and Ricky had the kid life that I was wishing I had wind I was looking at the Ozzie show. I really loved that show. But I did not know it was on the radio. I listen to the radio a lot. Country musie a lot. Thank you David for you and your family for the wonderful shows, I am now 73 old and still having old meamery times. GOD BLESS and HIS LOVE

None of our lives are perfect, but I hope David knew how sweet it was for us to watch his family on TV for so many years. God Bless all of them and their souls. Just a friend

Though The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet was merely an entertaining TV show and not a real life portrayal the American family, it was a nice way for children to deal with the rigors of the growing up. American fathers, mothers and children had a chance to laugh at themselves, a healthy form of escape we all need from time to time. Even today when a wedding guest toasts a newly wed couple, s/he may intone, "May you be as happy as Ozzie and Harriet!"

Grief can be so hard, but our special memories help us cope. Remembering you and your loved one today and always.

Thank you for sharing a part of your life with us.

Good show. Sorry the reruns were ever taken off. Dear Nelson family, I'm truly sorry for your loss. May the peace of God be with you.
