Aunt Olive, just wanted to let you know I still think about you everyday. I pass that way in front your house just about everyday on my way to work there in Jeanerette. I sometimes think about all the good memories I have from going with you, Uncle Calvin, Chad, and Brandy. We were kids back then. I always had a great time when I went there. You treated me like I was one of your own nephews. I loved going over to y’all place. I seen Chad outside the other day. I need to stop and visit with my good little buddy. Myself and Chad always did click when we got together. That was when times were simple and everyone I love was still alive. Wow. Times do change huh, Aunt Olive. Just wanted you to know there is still people out there thinking of you. Love and miss you.
