    I am honored to say a few words about my Aunt Oleah. She was a cheerful, fun-loving lady who was so full of life. Her smile could light up a room and it was infectious. She made everyone around her happy. Whether it was a funny joke, her positive attitude, or her big smile, she was always so fun to be around. I was very blessed to have stayed with Aunt Oleah last October. What a wonderful visit, we talked for hours! She even made about 20 phone calls and hours on the phone to track down a childhood friend of my Dads for me. She did it! And I was reunited with my Dads friend that week. Thank you Aunt Oleah! That was how she was though. So caring and thoughtful of others. To my cousins, I love you all so much and am so sorry for the loss of your Mom. I love you Aunt Oleah and will Miss you so much. I know you are with Uncle Larry now and that makes me smile. When someone you love becomes a memory, the memory becomes a treasure and you Aunt Oleah were a treasure!!! I love you….

    Sadie dear, I feel as if I must express my condolences to you for the loss of your dear Mom. She was a dear friend to my son Dan Snarr. When Dan and Jay were down at your house I never had to worry about them. Thanks for being their friend and always know that your mom was a great lady.
