I have so many fond memories of Uncle Ollie at Christmas, Thanksgiving, and other family events. He was an uncle I looked up to and enjoyed being around. He was a special member of our family with his wit, good humor and loving ways. He was such a good man in so many ways and I will cherish his memory. Love, niece Mary Lou
