Barb and I are sorry to hear about Olaf. May fond memories of the good times keep you strong in this time of sorrow. Even though death is expected, it still hurts in the heart. Watch for signs that he is with you from heaven.

our sincere sympathies. Olaf was a great guy and MAN could he grow HAIR ! When we first came to town Jean did 'costumes' for HELLO DOLLY, which we were all in, and cemented an admiration that lasted forever. Duane Kathy Midboe
