  • How lucky am I to have such a sweet, sweet Aunt! You will be missed more than words can express. I can still hear your voice.. I have missed your letters to Grandma Olson that I was privileged to have read to me over cheese sandwiches and root beer. I love you Olson family.

  • Our dear, beautiful mother was a gift to everyone who entered her life. I do not believe there was a person she met who did not feel her spirit, her warmth, her caring and her kindness. She loved her family with all her being, without judgment, always accepting and loving. She saw the good in everyone. She was and will remain an example to us all of wisdom, faith, caring, beauty, and deep unconditional love. A Christ-like love. We are all better for having been a part of her life. I miss you Mom – I will love you always and forever. Dana Ann
