Mal\'ma Olene was the glue of our family. She always made sure that every holiday was special, and she was kind and loving to all who knew her. She and Grandpa Pete always sacrificed for their family, and I will miss hearing her sweet voice and wonderful laugh. She taught me to fish, hunt and shoot guns on her farm, and she always encouraged me to face my fears. I\'m so thankful I was able to see her this Thanksgiving to have one last special holiday with such a strong, courageous woman. I know that she is embraced by her son, Roger, and husband, Pete, up in heaven.
