I just want all of Oliver's family to know how blessed I am to have known him and take care of him. He had the kindest soul and I could tell by all of the pictures in his room that he loved his family so much. He was truly a good man. My thoughts and prayers are with all of you at this time.

Oliver took me under his wing like a father when I was a single mommy of 3. I'd accepted the truth of the Seventh Day Adventist church and dedicated my children and was baptized soon after. Much of my first memories at Piedmont SDA church was being encouraged by both Oliver and Lolene. I attended his adult Sabbath School class until encouraged to teach in the children's division. I will always remember both Oliver and Lolene and look for the day when we will spend eternity with Jesus in that perfect place in the Kingdom He looked forward to very soon!
