“Olive was the first to warmly greet me to Weatherwood Manor.” I was not surprised to hear from so many residents this week. She had a bright light in her soul that made everyone feel at home and a compliment that made everyone smile. Myself included, my first day on the job, she came right up to me, telling me how nice I looked in my green dress. Feeling the material, discussing the classy style and informing me I’d fit right in. Olive had that way about her, spoke to you “just like family”. When she met my husband, she went on and on, saying how handsome he was and how good we looked together. I did as promised and told him what she said, How handsome he was. The next day I told her, that He said She was adorable. Olive bluntly said, “You tell him not only is he handsome, but he’s intelligent too”. Loved her humor, her sense of style and I will miss the spirit of my dear friend Olive!

What a long great life your mother had. I have fond memories of time at her house when Diane and I were friends
