Remember Our Friend Oliver Ogden.
OFF TOPIC discussions
This is Sharon - I just discovered these wonderful tributes to Oliver! Thank you all so much. Today he will be laid to rest at Indiantown Gap National Cemetery with full military honors. Monday night at the viewing the Mountain Dulcimer Players of Lancaster played background music for about an hour....such a wonderful tribute to him - everyone just LOVED it. I did have one of his dulcimers there---most people had no idea what it was. He loved this chat line and LOVED the Wartz group and friends....he struggled to get to the last meeting of that group. In his last week here on earth - we managed to get our our Oblate group at church, the Reptile Club meeting on Friday, friends from the Shell Collectors club here for dinner on Sunday and then one of his friends from the dulcimer group came and played music with him on Tuesday. Wednesday morning he was doing what he loved--feeding his turtles! Thank you all so much for being his friend (and mine too). Thank you to the Wartz group for the lovely plant you sent.
