    So sorry to learn of Odell’s passing. Unfortunately, we will not be able to attend the service, but we want you to know that you all are in our prayers. I have lots of fond memories of everyone sitting in the garage of Alice & Benton’s home visiting with each other. Years may have passed, but memories never fade! May God comfort you all!
