I'm deeply sorry to know that Olga passed away. I worked with Olga and her mother, Gloria, with the Gary Community School Corporation. My most sincere condolences to Olga's children, grandchildren, relatives, and friends. Olga had such a warm, kind, and friendly disposition. It was a pleasure to have worked with her. May you trust in God to help you through this difficult time. (Proverbs 3:5, 6) I'll keep you all in my prayers.
