Jon L. Osmundson

Dear Honey,

Thank you for loving me for 38 years and blessing me with four wonderful children, their wives and husbands, and our five beautiful grandbabies and one on the way. It always made me smile knowing that your ring tone was “Brown Eyed Girl” and that you’d always answer saying “hello my brown eyed girl”. Thank you for dressing up in ridiculous outfits for our Christmas cards, which made so many amazing memories for all of us. You were king of the air guitar and the life of any party. The video of your performance at Drew and Kristy’s wedding is my favorite memory. I have watched it every night and will continue to watch it with a heavenly kiss goodnight. You touched so many lives and truly made a difference in this world. We will forever remember to never take the highs too high and the lows too low. I love you always.

Your brown eyed girl,                             Lor
