Message: Merline,Linda,Shane,and grandgirls. I want to let you know that I am praying for all of you as I know that each of you are going through your own set of emotions and memories as you knew Mr.Olen. I have peace in knowing that he is no longer suffering and I know that you do, too. Isn't it awesome to have that certainty that our loved ones, who are in Christ, are only away from us for a short time. I'm sure that Hershel is showing him all the wonderful things in Heaven. I'm also sure that he has stood in Awe in the presence of the Holy of Holies. Wow!!! Even knowing all these things, it is still hard to lose those you love so dearly. I am praying for each of you to be strong for each other because you all will have your moments. I know there has to be relief in knowing that he is at peace. Remember...it is not goodbye....it's see ya later ;) Miss you,love you, and believe me; my heart is with you.
