To the Cribari Family,

I was so sorry to hear about Olga.  She has been a part of my entire life (from the days in Hales Court).  I went to elementary school with Sandy too. Over the years Olga has been at so many of our gatherings after all she was a part of our family and thank you for sharing her with us!  She spent many a weekend with my Nana, Frances Farrington, and my mom, Nancy Bauer, going to yard sales and stopping for a cup of coffee.  I will always remember her pointing her finger at me and saying “you, you, you”.  You all are in my prayers and she will be in my heart forever!  Love, Helen Bauer Sanford
