    My heart is broken. Uncle Olen will be missed so much. My mom, Maria Church, was his sister. She would be heart broken if I could tell her. She has dementia and we can’t tell her. Please know he was very dear to us. We will be praying for all the family and wish we could be there with you.

    Robin Church, neice
