I remember Lynn taking me to meet you, I was so nervous! But as soon as we walked in the door you took me by the hand and sat down with me. Within minutes you made me feel like I belonged in your family. I am so grateful that I am one of the lucky ones to have had you in my life. I love you so much Ollie!!

Aunt Ollie was my Momma's youngest sibling being just a year old when my sister Wynell was born. They grew up like siblings, Mom's eldest and Aunt Ollie 💗 By the time I came along Aunt Ollie had already begun her family and although we were never close the love was strong 💗 Love... Unconditional love... that's the legacy of the Kessinger siblings. No matter what happens love finds a way through. Hugs and much love all around 💗

I have too many memories to share here, she is and always will be my favorite Aunt, she told me over and over you ARE a Kessinger, being adopted has no meaning in this family. Aunt Ollie I'm sorry I didn't spend more time with you this I will always regret, but you left me with beautiful and lasting memories. Give dad (Bob) many hugs for me, until I see you again fly high you deserve rest now ❤️
