My sincere condolences to the Olson family, please read 1 Corinthians chapter 15 verse 26. At that scripture we get comfort knowing what will soon happen to death.

Kim and family, I am so sorry to hear about Billy. It’s been many years since I saw him, but, once in a while I’d see him around, he was always the sweetest person ever. My brother Eddie worked with him, said he was the best welder around. Remembering the time me, you and Billy dressed up for Halloween, went to river street had a great time, so long ago. Praying for his children, all family and friends, Love and so sorry for all of you.

May those who have just lost their dear loved one in death, know that God will give you the comfort you all need through His Holy spirit and there isn't a day that goes by that you won't remember your dearly and beloved Mr. Olson or also known as "Billy" but know that he is safe in God's memory awaiting for a resurrection that His Son, Jesus Christ will carry out and bring him back into your arms to hold and cherish and how do we know this to be true? Well, we don't have to look far. Many of you maybe wondering when will we see him again or where will he be brought back To? Well the Bible gives us the answers to those questions and so much more. For one, we need to look and see a future promise of Jesus Christ he gave us in the Bible book of John 5:28,29 which we find him here giving us or rather your Family a promise he will fulfill and by then the question remains. Where will he be brought back To? Well, for you to get to know the answer to that, we need to look back into the Bible and read what it says in Psalm 37:29 which says: The righteous will possess the earth and they will live forever on it...so one day many of you will be able to welcome him back into your arms to hold and cherish forever...

Expressing my sincere condolence for your families loss. Losing a loved one is most difficult to bear. Almighty God feels your sorrow and provides words of comfort for each one of you at 2 Corinthians 1:3,4; 2 Thessalonians 2:16,17. May love of friends and neighbors be a supportive network for you all during your time of bereavement now and in the days ahead. Your family will remain in my thoughts and prayers.
