Odell's granddaughter Sterling (Nicki) has been an amazing friend in Christ. She spoke so highly of her Papa. She wanted nothing more than to follow in his steps by bringing all walks of life to Christ. Nicki and the rest of the Bradley's are in my family's prayers.

I was sorry to hear of your loved one's passing but happy to know that he is with the Lord now. I too, Pam, have lost my father in death. It is not easy even if he has lived a good long life . . . just more memories to hold on to. I too, Peggy and Joanne, have within the last year lost my brother in a tree accident. Again it is never easy. May you all enjoy many wonderful memories as God holds you close through this journey. Please know that my prayers are with you all.

We are sorry to hear of Odell's passing. Gene was a faithful member of the choir Odell led all those years and backed him up. He and his family were dear friends n go way back. Iva too was a faithful member of his choir until she moved out of town. Iva was married to his nephew and loves all the Bradley family. We will be praying for Charlotte, Pam and the rest of the family. GENE and IVA
