Lynn, Libby and Jean, I am so sorry for your loss. I will always remember Olin and Nell as they were when they first got married. I always thought they made such a great couple. When they started having children I thought Ricky was the cutest little guy I had ever seen. All of their children were beautiful just like them. I will keep all of you in my prayers.

I'm so sorry for your loss. It was wonderful having this family live down the street from me. Olin was so talented and always provided a kind word and smile for you. He created beautiful flowers and a wonderful loving family. Peace be with you in the days to come.

I am sorry to hear of the loss of Olin but know he was ready to go home to
Jesus. I will remember his kind smiles, creative talents on the keyboard and his art of creating something more beautiful from something already beautiful, floral arrangements. He was devoted to God, Nell and his family. I will miss him as I do Nell. Delightful couple! Lynn, you were wonderful caring for your parents. You are in my prayers.
