Saying Goodbye

Uncle Ollie passed away Nov 21, 2012 in Raleigh, NC.
Today is his service of remembrance and burial in the family cemetery here in Virgina.
He was 90 years old. He and Aunt Dot were to celebrate 70 years together in January!
Uncle Ollie lived a good and long life. He and Aunt Dot farmed raising, corn, peanuts and hogs here on the family farm. When he retired he became bored so went to work at a local family owned supermarket bagging groceries and loading them in your car!
He was active in his church. He taught Sunday school, sang in choir, was church treasurer and served as deacon for 50 yrs for which he was given Deacon Emeritus.


Today we will all share some wonderful memories of your life.
Yes even the funny ones you would tell on yourself!
 Know you are in the Angel Choir.
Goodbye Uncle Ollie.
