We came to know and love Don and his family during the wonderful years we spent in Athens when I taught at Athens Bible School and preached for the Wooley Springs church of Christ. We treasure these precious memories and pray God to bless and comfort all the Osborne family.
In Christian love, Ron and Donna Halbrook

I was so fortunate to get to know Mr. Don & Ms. June as volunteers through Hospice of Limestone County.. Their gifts of time and love were very valuable to many patients and their families. My condolences to Ms. June and her family.

I am so sorry to hear of Bro. Osborne's passing. My memories of him go back to my youth. I will always appreciate his participation in my mama's and daddy's funerals. They were such an integral part of Market Street Church. My prayers and condolences go out to the family of this good man.
