Hi Laura, It's been a very long time. I just found that you lost a son, I'm so sorry. I worked with Bill at the old Economy Supermarket on seventh avenue, while in high school. If you see this, I would love to hear from you. Again, my heart goes out to you. Terry

Laura, I was a student of yours and neighbor growing up. My deepest condolences on the loss of your son Matthew. I was saddened to read about his death in the Times. It brought back memories of long ago seeing him as a little boy enjoying life. Our prayers go out to you and your family at this difficult time.

Dear Laura, I think I went to Geneva college with you. I was there in 1965- 1966. If I am right I was even at your home. There is nothing I can say on the death of a child. My mind doesn't even let me go there. I am so sorry. I have 2 girls and 6 grandchildren. My best to you and yours. Always, Margot

Dear Osman Family, Please accept our deepest condolences on the loss of Matt. I grew up with Mrs. Osman as my teacher at Beaver Falls Senior High. We all attended St. Philomena Catholic Church for worship and education. Matt and Chris were a little younger than myself however, everyone at St. Philomena is a family. We were very saddened at the untimely death of Mr. Osman and are saddened by Matt's. Our prayers are with you during this very difficult time and please know that we are thinking about you all. Sincerely, Brandi Mount-Bennett - Formerly of College Hill, Beaver Falls currently Cedar Park, Texas.
