You went away so suddenly
We did not say goodbye
But brothers can never be parted
Precious memories never die.

Otto, we will miss you until we'll see you again.

It's still a huge shock that you are gone Uncle Otto . What can I say that hasn't already been said . You had a kind and loving soul who loved his family deeply. I will always cherish the many times you came to my salon to get your hair cut , family gathers and the chats we had . I will also never forget how much you were so happy to meet Jayden . You were the first family member to the hospital besides my parents . The smile and the happiness on you while you held Jayden will always warm my heart . Will always miss and love you xoxo
