I wish to express my condolences to the family.  As you know, "Ozzie" was a member at Gate UMC of which I am pastor and we had many precious visits together at the Nursing Home.  I shall miss him.  In fact, Forgan UMC did the Beaver Nursing Home service on October 12th and it was so strange to not see him sitting in his usual chair at the service!  God bless you all!

Mr. Oswald was a dear man and a wonderful teacher.  I took every math course I could from him and what fun it was.  My condolences go out to his family, who will miss him most.

I  am sorry to hear of Mr. Oswald's death.  He was my favorite teacher when I was in high school; he knew how to teach everyone math.  We always had fun with him when we went to the sand hills for our special days, he was just like one of us kids.  He will be missed.
