My deepest condolences to the family of Otis Sledge. Otis and I were friends for over 40 years. We shared many happy times together listening to his blues collection and transferring movies. I will miss him dearly. One of Otis’ famous sayings is “ You got the right number but the wrong time, I’ll call you back even if I have to write”. This is just an example of his great sense of humor. Otis will truly be missed by many. To Pat and Eric, my thoughts and prayers are with you and I am just a phone call away.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

To the Sledge Family: I was sorry to hear about the passing of your loved one. Death is liken to a thief that comes and takes away our love ones. Or due to old age and sickness we lose that precious quality of life that leads to death. However, have you ever asked: Is death the end of it all? Or is there something else after death? The bible clears up any question we might have about death. It also shows that there is a real hope for persons who have faith. Yours truly, Patricia
