Cousins, Sorry to hear the sad news regarding Aunt Olie, she was a special lady. I'll always remember listing to her stories, her warm beautiful smile and that infectious laugh - it still puts a smile on my face. She's with Uncle Warren now. Miss them both. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all. Your Cuz, Fred
