My condolences for the wonderful man who was part of my family's life. My Dad was proud to call him "my friend." (Terry Smith). They worked together for the US Soil Conservation Service in Victoria. We also spent time at their home while the men worked at some project or another. I remember old cars, motorcycles, dogs, and listening to Jim's guitar music. Ollie was such a gracious host. We always felt very welcome at their country home in DaCosta. I am glad to have had the opportunity to know the Flowers' family.
