My thoughts and prayers go out to the family. I have very fond memories of Mr. O'Reilly. I wasn't one of his grandchildren, but he was always so kind and loving to my sister and me. I remember him teaching us kids how to whittle wood. He was always so patient with us. He always had funny stories to share with us as well.
