I know Mrs. Olga is in Heaven ! God bless her heart . She was always working in the yard or her store. She even raised her grandsons when their mama got on drugs.She always called in to check on me and Frank. She was such a big help to my family and the Olson bunch to.My thoughts and prayers go out to her grandsons . I know she is finally with her precious Jack and also with Mary !

Mrs. Olga was a sweet neighbor for several years when I lived in Calera. She and her husband were always so sweet and always there to lend a hand. She was also a fellow church member. She will be missed. Prayers for her family.
