Margie is my cousin. There are far too many words to describe Margie Odom. Let me just say if you knew her, you knew you were loved.
She made the BEST Southern breakfast I've ever eaten. Outstanding hostess. Best friend,
Loved family, true Christian.
Marge, were saying good bye for now. See you on the other side. I love you
Let's pray that they have rocking chairs in heaven. And no Long tailed cats.
God Bless her family. Strengthen them as they say goodbye to Margie.

Love you.
