Mike, Ann, Carol and Family,
May God give you comfort and peace in the loss of this very special man. Buddy and I remember the fun that they had at the auctions, the Christian example that was shown and the love between your mom and dad that was portrayed every time we saw them together. May the reflection of that light forever shine!
God bless you and your family!
In Christ,
Buddy & Marilyn

Just wanted to share a few words, the truth is that we only saw F.D. a few times, but we could see what a blessing he was to all. His reputation preceded him, and his actions followed. He was a person everyone would want in their family.

Our sincere condolences to all.
The Odom Family of Kerrville
