    Cynthia, I am so sorry. He was way too young! Love and hugs,

  15. My heart is heavy right now. I love the Oswald’s as my own parents. Every time I saw their name show up on my manifest to Rent I knew I would get a hug and an amazing story about their travels. They went on a trip that at first didn’t seem exciting to Mrs. Oswald but turned out to a awesome time they had on a cargo ship. Soon as they came in smiles lit up my office. I will miss the stories about going to visit Alex in Dallas. Hertz team in Waco are still here for you no matter what. Love ya’ll
