Paul was a fine man and a special cousin. I always enjoyed spending time with him at Grandmother Fleming's in Benton and at the Fleming family reunions. He always managed to provide some different insight into any subject that I hadn't considered before.

Sympathy to Paul Olson's family on your loss. I have not seen any classmates after our fiftieth reunion. My own husband of fifty years died after that and connections to Grandview less after loss of Rosa and Forrest John parents who were scouters there . This is a hard time for all of you. Peace. Aloha, Rosalie
