Goodbye Olive

Last year, I wrote a post about a 107-year-old woman whose friends had helped her set up a blog. The woman was Olive Riley, and she had a spirit and a joy for living that, frankly, I wish I had now, never mind 70+ years from now.

Olive passed away today at the age of 108. I know there is no way one could say she didn't live a really long, full life, but it's still sad for the family and friends she left behind, including Mike Rubbo, the person who helped her with her blog. And I'll tell you, I for one will miss reading about her exploits.

Goodbye, Olive. You were a really cool old lady whose blog charmed the pants off me.
