After attending the Premier of Silence of the North, at the Town Theatre, in Vernon, B.C. July 1981, (with Olive & John Fredrickson, and the Cast & Crew,) I am still in awe of the beauty of Olives' story and the excellent production by Universal Studio and the Cast. After all these years, I found myself in tears, while watching Silence of the North, on TV last night. Olives' heart warming true life story, is a timeless recollection of the life of a truly, remarkable woman and her family. We all miss our dear friends, Olive & John Fredrickson, so very much. This movie lets us visit with them one more time and brings back so many treasured memories.Vi ses senare, Olive & John...........
