So sorry for your loss. I have heard of Mr Day all of my life from my parents. Mr. Day was very kind to us in the year of 1951. We were living in Indianapolis and did not have a car. Mr. Oliver Day was very kind to allow us to ride with him from Indianapolis to Red Boiling Springs, Tn. at least on the two occasions I have hear of. My parents were Homer and Mary Bartley Lee. They were always very grateful to Mr. Day for his kindness.
