  1. So sorry to hear of the passing of your mother. I always enjoyed getting to visit with her out by her mailbox when I delivered her mail. She was quite the character! I understand what you are going through right now because my mother passed away the day after your mother did.. our thoughts and prayers are with you.

  2. I will forever be grateful that I got to meet her and enjoy her bright and cheerful spirit. My thoughts and prayers to ask the family and friends who’s lives she touched as she did mine.. RIP lovely Olive!!!
