Dear Nancy and family,
May your memories of the good time get you through the next year and beyond. Losing a loved one is never easy but knowing what a wonderful life you shared will bring tears of joy and sadness. My thoughts and prayers are with you as you cope as best you can.
Ozzie was a beloved professor and colleaugue at Mohawk College – to me he was both …. my prof first and later my colleaugue and mentor. He was a very caring, compassionate and fun guy. Thinking of your family at this very sad time.
Always a gentleman, so sorry for your loss.
Dearest Judy, Mark, Nancy and family,
Your friends at Telling Tales send their deepest condolences. We are thinking of you big time and sending our love. Ozzie had to be a champion and we can only imagine how very proud he must have been of you and your lovely family.
So sad. Sending much love on behalf of the Telling Tales Team.
All of you are in my thoughts. Truly he was the best.
Dear Judy and all of your lovely family:
So sorry to hear the news. Your Dad sure produced an amazing family (along with your mom). These are hard times ahead as you laugh and cry. Gabriel and I are thinking of you and shedding a tear for you. Virtual hugs for now. Real hugs when we see you Sunday! Love Anne and Gabriel
Dear Nancy and Family
So sorry to hear of the sad news regarding cousin Oz, he will be missed by us all. We are left with some fond memories and good times. Our thoughts and prayers are with you Nance and all the members of your wonderful family.
Dear Judy…I am so sorry for your loss. The DNA is surely living on in your family. Daughters and Daddy’s I think become particularly close as your kind and loving personality will attest to. My thoughts and prayers go out to you, Mark and your family.
Sending loving thoughts to Judy and the many other Boswells. I remember Ozzie fondly, although it has been a long time since I last saw him. I cannot attend the Celebration of Life Service, but will be sure to think of you all that day.
Judy and family…Those we love, don’t go away. They walk beside us every day. Unseen, unheard, but always near still loved, still missed and very dear. You all have wonderful memories of your dad. Keep them close. My condolences.
Sending loving thoughts to you and your family during this difficult time.
From the Rao Family, God Bless you all on this journey.
He was a remarkable man. Thank you for sharing him with us all.
Huggss and prayers. ?
Dear Boswell Family,
Mr. Boswell was a wonderful teacher at Mohawk College and I learned “COBOL” programming from him in the early 1980’s. He had a great sense of humour in the classroom… I recall one day when someone turned on a traffic display at the back of his class while he was teaching; he commented it was “pretty”, laughed, and continued with the lesson! He was very intelligent, worked hard at his job, and I feel privileged to have been one of his students.
Please know that I am thinking of you at this sad time.
With my sincere sympathy.
Thinking of you all at this very sad time. He was truly a Great Man.
