    Ms Olga was our neighbor for several years on Briarcliff. She was an inspiration and a joy to be around. Her laughter was contagious. We really enjoyed visiting with her while she was working out in her yard. She always had a funny story to share. I got to see her smile & hug her one more time this summer while I was at Arkanshire. She was so happy and loved it there. She said she had wished she had moved there a lot sooner. Ms Olga made the world a better place.
