    I was saddened to hear about the passing of Ms Ollie. She and Pat were faithful members of our Church for many years.Even as her health declined she would come to Church when she could. I will cherish the many conversations with her and Pat and our time of fellowship on our Christian journey together.I know there was a tearful Irish celebration when she and Pat were reunited in Heaven. They will be missed by all that knew them. Our sincere condolences to her family.
