Bruce, Lori, Christian and families,
Phyllis and Don were wonderful friends for more then 60 years. My first memories of Phyllis as my 7th. Grade Sunday school teacher but latter as active members at HTLC they became much more then friends. They journey through life forever leaving footprints of kindness and love, courage and compassion, humor and inspiration, joy, and faith. We can look back and clearly see all our memories they left behind- a trail bright with hope and generosity. We are thinking of you as you find your way through the emotions of your loss. We send wishes of comfort that soon you will find gladness in your memories and life with your Mom, Mother-in- law, Grandmother, and Great grandmother. We are praying you will be comforted with God’s presence.
In and with love,
Russ, Gayle and the whole Olson family
Russell Olson
