Dear David, Stephen & family,
I was so very sorry to hear of Olivia's passing. She was a beautiful lady, inside and out.I shared many fun weekends at the Cape with her.
I'll never forget that she and I were on the Cape for the April 1, 1997 blizzard. We were sitting on the dunes, in the snow while the snow melted around us.
I know you will miss her terribly but we have to believe she is happily reunited with Stu.

So very saddened to hear of Olivia's passing. We started teaching together in 1970. She was such a compassionate, loving, and witty person! She was always a pleasure to be with!

My thoughts and prayers are with her family during this very difficult time. May she Rest In Peace.

Steven, Gina, David and family you are in my thoughts and prayers, Auntie Olivia was a very special person. I have such fond memories of summers spent with her and Uncle Stu at the Cape or decorating her classroom for the coming school year. Christmases spent opening gifts to the wee hours of the morning or going to the drive in during school vacations. She will never be forgotten.
