Our hearts go out to the Olvera family. It is so sad that both Frank and Dolores passed away so recently. They were our neighbors for many, many years, and we already miss them. As Robert told me, "Perhaps his father was calling to his mother". And now may they be back together again, as they were for 61 years.
