How I loved my brother-in-law and his many stories. He was very good to my sister, Elaine. I prayed for you Olen daily that God’s will be done. You are now healed dear one. No more sorrow no more pain. Let light perpetual shine upon you.

Olen Ray was my cousin. I spent many summers on his family’s farm as a child. I was a city girl and learned a lot from the Dillard boys about country life!! Olen Ray was always kind and considerate . He had a great sense of humor too! Rest In Peace. I will see you again one day .
