I am sorry for the loss of your loved ones. It was so sad to loose them both so close together, however they look like they belong together. I didn't know either of them, but I am sure its my loss they were surely good and unselfish people by giving of their time to help others. They will surely be missed. Very sorry. Doris Comer

To the Ooten family, your parents were really special people. Always had a smile and something to say when they seen you. The only time Roy didn't wave when you passed is when he was not on the porch.I worked with Esther for several years at Ky. Pants. She was a big help to me.They both will be greatly missed by us.
