We are so sorry for your loss. Praying for peace and comfort for you and your family during the difficult days ahead.

Thank you for making the pictorial video - it was like a walk down memory lane for me. Jeff and I were married in 1955. I was just a little more than 10 years older than LaDonna, so she was still a child when I first became acquainted with the family. I loved seeing the pictures and remembering the dear family members that have been gone a long time and seeing pictures of you and LaDonna as your boys were born and grew up.

Jeff and I were so glad that the two of you drove all the way from Tallahassee to Cordele the last 2 years we had the Odom Reunion, to eat and spend time with those of us who gathered at the restaurant the night before, and drove back the same night. It meant a lot to us. Love and hugs!!
