Sorry for your loss. I got to know Ormal growing up but mostly thru work days at the Sunset Rest. Ormal took very good care of the cemetary for years. He was very maticuluss of the way it looked. While on work days our group would always end up asking questions about someone and Ormal most of the time would have some history about the person. We will try to keep up with his comitement. RIP
