OLAFSON, Neil Ronald, January 13, 1958 –

May 10, 2014. With a heavy heart and immeasurable sadness our family announces the sudden passing of Neil. Brother, uncle, son, nephew and a friend to all who met him. He was a gentle soul with a huge heart and to say we loved him and will miss him hardly seems enough.

May your spirit soar in freedom

from the fears that gripped so tight.

May you find the peace you

searched for as you wandered,

lost, in the night.

May your tortured mind be clear and calm, and your tender heart be warm. May you have no need for strength now; may there ne’er be another storm.

May the music of the angels, be the sweet sounds that you hear, as you’re rocked in Heaven’s cradle,

may you ne’er shed another tear.

I’ll wear your memory proudly, my only brother…my best friend.

May my love for you reach Heaven above, until we meet again.
