She particularly loved to use her wonderful sense of humor with laughter thereby lifting others' spirits and sense of humor and joy. She will be missed and long remembered by all who knew her. Olivia would know that she was her husband James' world, and a hole, the size of his love for her remains in his heart. She was such a wonderful human being that we know God and Jesus Christ will promptly accept her in Heaven, and she will be gladly accepted and left to pursue her and laughter to watch over all here on Earth.
