BILL AND OLIVE’S FAMILY…. I AM SORRY FOR YOUR LOSE. I REMEMBER VISITING YOUR FAMILY UP THE LONG ROAD TO THE FARM. MY DAD (ERNEST) LOVED TALKING WITH BILL. ALSO MY DAD LIVED ON THE FARM FROM THE TIME HE WAS TWO YEARS OLD TO ABOUT ELEVEN. THAT WAS BACK IN THE 30’S. HE ALWAYS HAD GOOD STORIES TO TELL. OLIVE AND MOM (HELEN) WOULD SEEM TO BE IN THE KITCHEN MOST OF THE TIME, TALKING AND DRINKING COFFEE. LOVE TO THE FAMILY.
May the promise found at Isaiah 25:8 bring some comfort in the death of Olive P. (Renshaw) Groskopf. “He will swallow up death forever. The Sovereign Lord will wipe away the tears from all faces.” Just imagine, no more pain and grief due to the death of a love one! By means of the Kingdom that Jesus Christ taught us to pray for, God is going to remove sickness, old age and death from the human family.
Patty, I’m so sorry to hear you lost your mom. I know how close you were to her. She’s still as beautiful as I remember her. Prayers to you and the rest of your family.

TO Olive and Bill ‘s children- I can remember the first day I met Olive and Bill . She is a wonderful and blessed person you’d every met. and for her husband Bill , He was a nice man. They both like to tease and joke around with everyone they met. I always thought a lot of Olive . She just had that special gift with in her to love and care for anyone. It didn’t matter to her who you were. If she didn’t like you she would tell you . I can’t remember anyone she didn’t like. If she teased you and you thought she didn’t like you . It was just her way to show you the kind of love she had for you. God created the most strongest , amazing and beautiful lady. She’s going to be sadly missed by our family and a lot of o family and friends. But she will not be forgotten. She will always be in our heart and memories. I’m so sorry for each and everyone of you for your loss. Keeping you all in our prayers . Sending our condolences to each and everyone of you,
