Uncle Okie will always lovingly be remembered for the joy he and Aunt Lea showed the boys and I over the years at the family reunion. Our oldest son's middle name is after Okie's middle name. The entire Gallien family has lost a great one.

The last of our family’s 6 siblings. Uncle Okey always cast a big shadow in our family that will never be replaced. The wonderful old photos made me laugh and yet feel sadness that we will not see those faces again. RIP Uncle Okey. Nancy and Joee
