Not sure what to say?

Ola Jean was very special to me. She was the sweetest person I have ever known. I got to meet her while I was an AFS exchange student in Texas. She was a ray of sunshine in my life during my stay in Baytown.

My sincere and heartfelt sympathy to her husband Willian, their sons, daughters, and their families.

Anita & Joan, thinking about you during the dark clouds of sorrow you are going through now, please think about all the happy memories that you had with Ola...

Ola, truly was like a shining star in the East. My heart just aches for Bill, her family and all of us who loved her. Only God in heaven understands why she was taken so early from us, but we will rejoice in her memory and the time we were able to share with her here on earth. My deepest condolences during this most difficult time of not being able to share our grief in gatherings. Hoping we can all be together again very soon to share our memories of Ola. We will miss you so much....

Bill, we are here for you and your family

Bill, we wanted to say that our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. Ola will be deeply missed. She was truly a great and sweet lady. If there is anything we can do, we will be there for you all. Prayers and blessings brother. Nick and Gwen Coronis

She was a bright light and will be missed

May your hearts soon be filled with wonderful memories of joyful times together as you celebrate a life well lived.

Thoughts and prayers for family and friends. Ola was such a loving sweet person. Enjoyed our times at OES together. Love and hugs to all.

God Bless and keep her family safe. Hugs to you all. God picked a Rose

Heaven has a place for everyone, and another Angel has been born. Prayers to the Jones family in these hard times. I never got to spend a lot of time with Ola but I know how much family meant to Faith and how much she loves her momma. Prayers to all and God bless.
