To Mr. Oliver, Rick, Beth and Melissa, I am so sorry for your loss. I wanted to be at the mass of Christian burial, but unfortunately work precluded me from doing so. What a fine lady. My prayers are with you. Polly Rippe Dickmann

I'm so sorry for your tremendous loss. Mrs. Oliver was such a kind and generous person, upbeat and energetic, creative and funny. I'll always remember her hospitality, how she opened her home, invited me for dinner, and treated me like family, serving up humor and kindness in equal measure.
