I miss my friend. Every time I hear someone say fun I think of you. Hardy laugh, dimpled grin, sparking eyes and "strawberry colored" hair.
see y'all later. #smiling

My deepest sympathy to Alfred and Joy. Oveda was our neighbor many years ago. I will never forget her hearty laugh and big smile. She has touched many hearts in her 97 years. She was a blessing to everyone she met. Cynthia Millan Holder

Sorry to hear of your loss. Oveda was a very nice lady and good friend for years of my Mom's, Betty Little Butler.

Overs, you have always been one of my favorite people to come into Dr. Towns office in Orange Park. You always had a smile for everyone. I will miss you, along with many more people whose lives you touched.
