  • Craig and Alison,

    We are so sorry to hear the news about your mother.

    I have good memories of Olga! I visited her a few times and we drank tea & chatted. An especially fun & fond memory is the time I shimmied under the front of her car in the garage. I heard a plastic part of her car dragging on the street as she returned home. A couple of zip strips had that problem solved! These are just a couple memories I carry of your mother.

    Our thoughts are with you and yours,
    Renee & Quinn Smith
