I am so sorry to hear of Aunt Olga's passing and would like to extend our condolences to her entire family. It's been a very long time since I have seen her, but I clearly remember visiting them at the Lodge as a child. I remember her as being a kind, loving women whom our Mother cared for very much. She worked very hard at raising her beautiful family and running the Lodge and at the same time made time for us. I hope you can find comfort in all the fond memories you have created as a family and know that we are thinking of you.
