Mom and I will miss our treks to Lauren’s chicken-n-biscuit lunch, Listening to you laugh at “Golden Girls” reruns and helping me with the yard work. Sunday was Mom and your “special” time watching church services on TV. Your time with our family seems like it lasted a lifetime. Until we all meet again, Oli, we love you and miss you. Sue, Mom, and Hard Family.
