I have lost a wonderful friend. Such a sweet Christian lady who would do anything for you and a visit with her was always like a ray of sunshine. I know she is happy to be with Olin in their Heavenly home. She is missed but I'm looking forward to seeing her again in Heaven, thanks to the death, burial and resurrection of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ!!
