    For Bert, Kathy, Jim and family…it is with much sadness that mom & dad (Jerry & Sharon Hofacker) called today to let Jim & I know about Ollie. We know how difficult this time is and want you to know that we wish for Ollie comfort and peace. For those he has left here, let us always remember God had blessed us with his presence and be forever grateful for that time. Though our visits with Ollie & Bert were few, we were always so happy for any time spent with them. Bert & family, our prayers and sincere sympathy are with you.

    Sally, Kathy and Family, I was so sorry to see that Oli passed away this week. I’m sure that he is fishing with Mom and Dad (Cleon and Sadie)! I would love to be there on Wednesday, however our granddaughters are going to be with us. Please call when you get to Pelican Lake, I would love to visit with you. Our Sympathy – Carole & Denny Bollig
