So sorry for your loss of Eazy. Daddy (Casey and Mary Oliver) so loved the two of you and enjoyed a great friendship with you. I can't remember a time Daddy went to the hospital that you and Eazy didn't show up and sit in the waiting room with us. So glad you have your kids to see after you. Love you and I send prayers and sympathy. Gaye Oliver Pierce
