Our family extends our sympathy to you on the passing of Mr. Ollie. As a child I would really enjoy riding my bike up to Sease's Store, which seemed like a very long way from out house, to get a hot sausage and cold drink. He was always kind and often offered a free piece of "penny candy". We appreciate his service to our country having retired honarably in the service of our country. We are very sorry for your loss. Lee, Carol, Joseph and Amelia.
