Memories Timeline


  1. You will always be in my heart, you were always happy, and full of fun. I will miss you.

    Love, Teresa Patterson and family.

  2. Dear Aunt Jeanette and family,
    I was so saddened to hear of Uncle Otis’ passing. I will always remember how kind he was to me and my siblings when we were little but most of all, I remember how much my Mom loved him. She would spend hours talking to him on the phone and I know that she always missed him very much since he was so far away in Georgia. You are all in our prayers now. May God help you through this difficult time.

  3. Dear Aunt Jeanette, Phillip, Melissa and families,
    We are so sorry to hear of the passing of Uncle Otis. I remember how excited we would be when you all would come to visit in Pittsburgh. Uncle Otis was always so funny, and made us all laugh and smile. My Mom and Dad loved and adored him. Perhaps now, they are all sharing some of Grandma’s sweet tea. You and your family will be in our prayers at this difficult time. Love and sympathy to all of you.

  4. Dear Aunt Jenette , Phil, and Melissa,
    my heart is sadden by your loss. Uncle Otis will be remembered as the coolest
    uncle. Every time we visited you, or you visited us, we had the greatest time.
    I especially remember a Doolittle reunion 34 yrs ago. He took us to underground
    Atlanta, and we went to six flags with Phi and Melissa. He was our Uncle, but
    always hung out with the kids. He was young at heart, and so much fun.
    I am sure granny and grandpap, are happy to me with him again. He probably
    teasing Uncle Albert and Aunt Susie this very minute

  5. Dear Jeanette , Phil, Melissa, Hulon
    and Rita our hearts are sadden by your loss. Otis will be remembered by all. We remember him as OI. Of course that certainly was an inappropriate handle, for Otis, for he accomplished much in his life time.
    We also remember him as the coolest just like his nieces & nephews.
    You are all in or Prayers during this difficult time. May God bless you.
