  12. Chuck and Candy, this is so late you may not get this. I discovered this as I searched for Olllie’s information…I just learned of her passing tonight. I’ve always had great respect and fondness for for your mother and father. Connie and I started our marriage in thier home. I have great memories of them and have spoke of them to my friends as examples of good people that we could only hope to be like. They loved each other the way two people should, and it showed. I will always miss them. Neil
