Memorial Service-Oliver Jr. December 15,2012

We had Aunt Osie “skyped” into the service so she could hear it.  Then daddy was able to talk to his beloved twin.

They talked about seeing each other in glory and then daddy spontaneously sang a song about heaven to her and Harry chimed in. It was precious.

There has been a request for the powerpoint pictures we showed of Oliver Jr.

  1. Sylvia Said:

    Awesome pictures, Pat. Can you change the “twins” picture to “is” instead of “was”??


  2. Susan (Presley) White Said:

    Thanks so much for sharing this. I forwarded the link to my parents. They appreciate the pictures since they were unable to attend the funeral.

    Thanks for the photos! I’m sorry I couldn’t be there. (I wish both “girl” twins could have attended) Kathy
