    Dearest family of Olen,
    I could not have asked for a sweeter and kinder uncle than Olen. He had a wonderful Godly countenance, and I’ve always enjoyed any of the times I’ve been able to visit or talk with him and Aunt Elene. May God bring many happy memories of Olen to you all over the coming weeks and months. I look forward with joyful expectation how we’ll be able to visit and talk with him again in the great “by and by” for eternity!
