    Hopefully, this message will reach some relative of Priscilla. The Osborns lived across the street from us in Grosse Pointe Farms, MI in the 1940s .. and when Check, Priscilla’s father, was KIA. Check and my dad, Jack Sutton had become best friends and my dad mourned Check’s death always. I have a photo of Priscilla in my small group of my birthday party @ 1942. I’d be happy to send a copy of that photo to a relative of Priscilla’s. I also have the program from Check’s memorial service and Naval plaque at Brodhead Naval Amory in Detroit. I have tried for years to locate that plaque since the Armory was closed. I have not been successful and none of the many plaques on the Armory walls seem to be missing. Anyway, I wanted any Osborn relatives to know that Check may be gone from sight, but never forgotten by a best friend’s daughter now 86 and still searching for the plaque made by his Naval Academy friends.
