We know you can no longer stay with us,
you fought long and hard to be with us.
We know you now watch over and protect us,
Although we cannot hear your voice or see your smiling face,
We know deep down in our hearts that you have not left us.
Instead everyday you surround us with the singing of the birds,
the rising of the sun and the falling of night.
So many broken hearts are left behind,
But in our deepest despair our greatest comfort lies knowing
that you are now at peace with the angels and God.
So as times passes our tears will dry,
our hearts will mend
but our love for you will never end.

Oliver was a coworker at Wal Mart. He called himself an old ridge runner from WV. At 80 yrs old he was keeping up with us sometimes maybe a little slower . RIP Oliver.

We first met Ollie when we ran Bud's Produce in Jacksontown. He'd bring in fresh stuff from his garden. Later, we liked to greet him at Walmart. He was a joy to talk with. For the family, please accept our condolences. We already miss him. Don, Sue and Aaron McFarland (formerly of Bud's Produce).

I remember Mr. Brown from Wal Mart, but my favorite memory of him was when I met him at his sons house, and we sat out on the patio, and I actually got to know him the man, other than the Wal Mart Greeter. Rest in Peace Mr. Brown. My condolences to Roland, Dan and Estelle and the rest of the family.
