    I am so very sorry to hear about Oli's passing. Oli was a great guy and was instrumental in my decision to move my family to the Atlanta area from Boston in 1990. I remember him fondly and offer my deepest sympathies to Barb and the family.

    Dear Mrs. Markusson and family: When I joined SAP in 1998, my first project was with Oli. He was the project manager and I will always have great memories of him. He was an amazing colleague and friend. He used to make us laugh all the time. I know this is a hard time for you and your family, but part of his legacy will always live with me. My sincere condolences, he will be missed.
