Oliver says

“From the bottom of my heart, a big thank you to everyone who came to the funeral today. As you can imagine, the past week has been a nightmare. I owe you all a great debt. I never would’ve made it through without your love and support. Audrey and Ava would’ve appreciated you all being there. For those who couldn’t make it, I know your prayers are with me and with them. Words cannot properly express my gratitude.”

Eve says

“Beautiful service, Ollie! Glad I could be a part of it!”

 

George says

“God, I still can’t believe they’re gone. They will always live on in our hearts. Let me know if you need anything, Ollie!”

 

Tonya says

“The video you played at the service brings me to tears just thinking about it. Is there any way I can get a copy? Ava is so cute in her pink dress. She wore that so proudly at her 8th birthday party! Miss her. Miss Audrey. Miss you too, Ollie! God bless!”

 

George says

“I can make copies of the DVD for whoever wants it. Contact me directly. Let’s not bother Ollie with it. Got your back, Ollie!” (15 likes)

 

Fred says

“Yes! I’d like one too, please!”

 

WHiSPER says

“They needed to die, Ollie. How else could you see the truth? You killed them. Accept it.”

 

Eve says

“Who is WHiSPER?”

 

Tonya says

“Definitely sign me up for the DVD, George.”

 

Fred says

“What the hell, WHiSPER? Whoever you are, this is not a time for pranks! These are the lives of real people with real pain! I suggest you remove your post and go straight to hell!”

 

WHiSPER says

“Pain is transformative.”

 

George says

“Who is this guy? Did someone hack Oliver’s page?”

 

Frieda says

“I’ve never heard of WHiSPER. What kind of name is that?”

 

Tammy says

“Go away, WHiSPER!”

 

WHiSPER has been removed from the conversation.

 

Fred says

“Ollie, I don’t know if you’ve been reading these posts, but I want you to know that I reported WHiSPER to the authorities. He shouldn’t be bothering you or anyone again. I’m so sorry this jerk is trying to ruin our time of mourning. Probably some idiot troll. Disgusting! Your real friends are looking out for you. Anything you need, Ollie. Just name it.”

 

WHiSPER has been removed from the conversation.

 

Tammy says

“Don’t let him get to you, Fred. Whoever this is, he just wants attention. The best thing to do is to ignore him!”

 

WHiSPER has been removed from the conversation.

 

George says

“Why doesn’t he give it up? He’s not even making any sense! STOP!”

 

Fred says

“Ignore him.”

 

Layla says

“It’s gotta be a virus. He’s probably not even a real person, just some stupid bit of code that keeps hacking into the conversation. So annoying! So sorry, Ollie!”

Oliver says

“Thanks again, everyone, for all the kind words and support. I’ve decided to go away for a while. I will not have my cell phone with me and will not be checking Facebook. Thank you all for understanding.”

 

Tammy says

“We totally understand, Ollie. How long will you be gone?”

 

Fred says

“Have a safe journey, my friend!”

 

Zip says

“Do you need someone to feed the fish? We can take ’em for as long as you need.”

 

Zip says

“You have fish, right?”

 

Gretchen says

“Did I miss you already? Have you left? You didn’t show up for dinner. I tried calling and no one answered. I stopped by this morning and again no answer. I’m worried about you, Ollie. Call me when you get the chance.”

 

WHiSPER has been removed from the conversation.

 

Fred says

“To anyone following this thread, I’m pretty sure Oliver has left town. I’ve tried calling him multiple times and have been over to his place. No one answers. Wherever he was going, he’s probably already there.”

 

George says

“I hope it’s Tahiti. That boy could use it.”

 

Fred says

“You said it.”

 

Taylor says

“Are you kidding? Finance guys live the most exciting lives EVER.”

 

George says

“He’s an accountant. And too soon, Taylor!”

 

Taylor says

“Whatever. It’s not like Oliver reads this shit anymore. It’s been weeks now. I feel bad for the guy, but he owes me. You’d think someone who deals with $$$ all the time would be better at handling it.”

 

George says

“Not the place, Taylor. Show some respect.”

 

Taylor has been removed from the conversation.
