It is with an extremely heavy heart that I read of this sad news. The entire Olson family was like my 2nd family when I was growing up. During the summers, I used to spend more time at their house than my own. This family is and was so amazing to me, I felt loved, like I was one of their own kids. We had alot of fun as kids, at times a little too much! Adventures each visit from camping at Evergreen, eating yummy food, watching The Wheel, Fantasy Island, and The Love Boat, Riverview Lutheran gym time, Appleton Foxes games, playing out in the yard and street until past dark. We had a GREAT time just being kids! What a wonderful family, always so kind and SO funny, always a joke, a smile and a hug! I am unable to make moms celebration of her life but please know I am there with you in spirit. Know how much my heart breaks for your loss, please take good care of each other! Mom was a wonderful woman who loved life, friends, and most of all family! Love you much, Laura
