I'm very sad I didn't get to see Uncle Orlay the last couple of times I have been home and I just missed seeing him this time. I will fondly remember my many house visits the one year I lived across the road from him in 1988-1989. Uncle Orlay had a great way of sharing stories and he was a good listener. His smile lit up any room he was in. Bye Uncle Orlay, may you say hi to our son in heaven. RIP, sending my condolences to all who knew him, Cindy Little and family
