My Dear Aunt Ollie You were an angel on earth. Your gentleness and sweetness will be missed. You had an inner strength that got you thru the difficult times life passed your way. You were always so loving and very much loved. Each year mom couldn't wait to get to NC to be able to spend time with you. Now you two are together again in heaven along with the rest of the family. Let your love and light shine down on the rest of your family here on earth until we meet again. Give a hug and kiss to my mom. Love from you niece Teresa

My Sweetest Ma-Ma I was the daughter that lived the furtherest away but always kept you so close in my heart. You always told me from an early age to make good grades, go to college, and be a good good girl. You allowed me to be independent, fearless, and strong. I hope to follow your wisdom, your grace, and your decency. To be humble. My fondest memories are you playing ball with us, riding bikes with us, and taking us blackberry picking. How I remember your sweet voice singing your ole gospel songs. You so loved watching Billy Graham sermons. Your faith was unwavering and strong. I so admired that. But more than anything I will remember how you loved us girls so selflessly, equally, and abundantly. I feel so fortunate to have had you in my life for 62 years. I will continue to see and feel you in the beautiful Azaleas, Hydrangeas, and Dogwoods as they bloom forth every spring. As I will feel your spirit in all the birds chirping so sweetly. We had a wonderful time watching that Bluebird out of window as your life began to wind down. So hopeful and inspiring. Ma-Ma I love you with every breath in my body and your kind and gentle soul will forever be with me. Your Youngest Daughter, Monica Herron

To my special Mother-in-law, I remember when I first met you. I had just started dating your daughter, Libby. You were very nonjudgmental and kind to me and you remained that way for the 35 years I knew you. As I look out the window, I see all the trees coming into bloom. I remember how you enjoyed going for walks in the woods and appreciating all of Gods nature. You were a very kind soul that led by example. Your spirit will be with me and all the lives you touched in your life time. God bless you Granny Ollie.

To my Little Mama, I have had a lifetime spent with you but the last 17 months have been so special. I loved visiting with you, fixing your hair pretty, applying your pretty pink lipstick, sharing a corn dog with you, and harressing the nurses. With all seriousness, the nurses that cared for you were wonderful. My heart is broken but I know God will give me the strength to carry on. In the end your wishes were honored and you were at peace. I know God will watch over both of us. I love you so much.
