mickey whalen fitch I was unable to attend services for James Oliver, but thought a lot of him. I know that he loved my father, Raymond Whalen and was very upset when daddy died. I remember well visiting with Lydia, Britain, John, Henry and Mary Frances when we were kids. I called Uncle Pete in Florida to tell him of James's passing. Uncle Pete was Daddy's younger brother. My sympathy to all the family.
Brenda Sue Henry Just wanted to let you know I wish I could be there for you. Know I care and am praying for all. Love to all, Brenda Henry
