Kathy and children, I just read in the Tyler paper tonight about Louis and am so sorry. I called Carolyn,Sharon and Michael to let them know also. I tried to find your address among Aunt Doris's papers. I wish you all to know how very sorry I am, but I am glad we at least got to see each other at Aunt Doris's funeral and visit even if it was for just a short while. Take care and God bless. Deborah Bosworth Robertson, September 1, 2009 To my dear friend Vicki, Mrs. Bosworth and your wonderful family, the pain at your sorrowful loss is no doubt unbearable. My prayers continue for peace and comfort today and in the days to come. I also would like to share some words that have provided comfort as my father passed a year ago. Love to all ~ Death is nothing at all, I have only slipped away into the next room. I am I, and you are you; whatever we were to each other, that, we still are. Call me by my old familiar name, speak to me in the easy way which you always used, put no difference in your tone, wear no forced air of solemnity or sorrow. Laugh as we always laughed at the little jokes we shared together. Let my name ever be the household word that it always was. Let it be spoken without effect, without the trace of a shadow on it. Life means all that it ever meant. It is the same as it ever was. There is unbroken continuity. Why should I be out of mind because I am out of sight? I am waiting for you, for an interval, somewhere very near, just around the corner. All is well. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Henry Scott Holland 1847 -1918 Sharon Baroody, August 29, 2009 Brian my heart goes out to you and your family. My prayers are with your family. You have always been my favorite Sooner! Life long Brian Bosworth and Sooner fan! Skip Allman, Class of 63' Mansfield, OH Skip Allman, August 27, 2009 I had the chance to work with Foster during my time at Rockwell International in Plano. I had the opportunity to see him strive for perfection....yes that was him. I worked with him during the time his Son was going into Big Time Football. He was proud of all his family. My you be Blessed with comfort during this time. ~Diane Elder~, August 27, 2009 Kathy, Brian and the Bosworth Family, As I read the paper this morning, I remembered the many times Foster and I sat in our office and solved the "World Problems" and even made up a few. The many times we talked about Brian's career(football/movie)you could tell it in his voice how proud he was of his #44. It was a blessing to me to have known Foster and to be able to say his was my friend. I remember when he got his Porsche. The roads were icy and as we were going down a hill, we spun around two times and all he said was,"That was fun". Foster enjoyed life and all it had to give him, and he got a lot. God Bless you and your families. I will never forget my office buddy. James (Jim) Powers Tyler, TX Jim D Powers, August 27, 2009
