I was fortunate enough to be one of Orville's sitters for a while and enjoyed our 3am talks about CNN and of course the snacks.Never a complaint from this man about anything,always checked to see that Florence was alright and of course that Molly was in the house. You will be greatly missed my friend.

It is with saddened hearts that we have to say goodbye to your Dad, Orville. It has been a true pleasure to have known him and to have been able to spend time with him over the past several months. His girl Molly will miss him greatly but he is now reunited with his best friend Bear. Thank you for giving us this opportunity to have known your Dad. Heaven has just received it's newest angel.
