Dear Family, I am so very sorry about the loss of year dear loved one. May the thought at Job 33:25 give you comfort in knowing that Mr. Ottesen will return to the days of his youth and be able to enjoy life without the infirmities of old age. My sincere condolences to you.

To the wonderful family of Tom Ottesen, I am glad that I had the opportunity to meet your wonderful husband, Marilyn, and your wonderful father, Jay, Kim, Sherri and Rob bie. He was a joy to visit with; his calm and kind manner made him easy to talk to about any subject. He always made me and I'm sure others, comfortable and at ease in his presence. Keep the loving memories alive; they will be a comfort when you feel sad he is no longer on this earth. He lived a good life and was able to pass on with all of you by his side. My heartfelt condolences to all of you. If there is anything I can do for you to make this time easier, please do not hesitate to reach out. My love and prayers to all of you. Linda Slack
