Guestbook

To her family, you have our deepest condolences on the passing of your dear mother. The picture you chose says everything about Olive. She was never without that smile when we would run into her. With her living away in recent years, we haven't had an opportunity to see in in quite a while. But the memory of her kindness and good works throughout her church and all of Germantown will live on in our hearts, as well as in those of everyone who loved her. Karen Carmickle and Mark Heistand
