    Mr. Orville was always kind to us as we lived in the little rental house. I don’t know if he could ever hear me, but he always smiled and nodded his head like he could. And he waved hello as I sat in the ditch to give him lots of clearance on the driveway! I enjoyed meeting him! I’m sorry for your loss.
