    To the family I am so sorry for your loss. Ollie was a good friend. We worked together at McCready. So glad I saw her about 3 weeks ago and we had a nice visit

  • I am unable to travel back East to be with the family today. My heart and thoughts are with you during our time of loss. Aunt Ollie was a true care giver. When my father was a young boy, she helped raise him when Grand Mom Emily went to Philadelphia to work. After Grand Mom Emily passed, Aunt Ollie, did a fantastic job making sure Grand Pop Albert was OK. She called twice a day and stopped by to check on him. I will forever be grateful for that dedication.
