William H. Ott

Farewell, Dad.
You were the best father ever.
You touched so many lives.
You made us laugh.
You gave us hope.
You will be missed.
God bless you as you find your way into Heaven.
July 13, 1930 - November 2, 2008

My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

I know that your dad, and also your mother, must be extraordinary, wonderful parents and human beings to raise two of my favorite people. (I only know you and your sister, although I think you have another brother who I don't know.)

Much love to you at this sad time,

Thanks for your kind words and thoughts, Kathy. I do have a brother, Bill Ott, Jr., who is a few years older than I am. He lives in Atlanta and is a wonderful brother to me and Laurie.
