Ollie Kanipe was a remarkable woman. Her daughter Shirley allowed me to have the honor of inclusion into her family. She made a difference in all our lives. Christmas, birthdays, and weekly visits were part of a giving and loving life. We know her destination as a calming and devoted follower of Christ. Thank you for the walnut pound cakes.

Aunt Ollie's smile, and sweet personality, made everyone that visited feel welcome and loved. When you got to know her, her quick wit would surprise and amuse you.

I will miss her kind words and unselfish acts of kindness. Aunt Ollie, I love you and will never forget your beautiful smile and loving hugs.
