What a ripe age Mr. Oakland was blessed to see with special mightiness. I can imagine the stories he would relate as he saw the world make many changes. Cherish the memories that pain can’t steal. May family and friends give support to help you heal.

When I was little and we would go to Moundsville to visit Grandma Key, I always loved when Uncle Eddie stopped by to see us. I always thought and still do that he was the nicest guy. My sympathies to Carol and Buddy. You’re in my thoughts.
