I do not remember Olgerts but I have so often thought of Olgerts’s gentle sister Inara since she and I were students at Washington High School in the mid-fifties. If he was like her he will be sorely missed. Would you tell Inara of the long-lasting impression she made upon Bernice Nickolaisen ? a 1955 graduate.
