Uncle Odis was always so happy and joking with us kids. He always told me that I was named after the song "Get A Long Home Cindy, Cindy and I'll Marry You Some Day". When I was carrying my son he told me that there was nothing prettier than a pregnant woman, that they just glowed. That made me feel real good, as I was huge.

I will miss his loving, happy spirit and his joking. Knowing he is back in the loving arms of Aunt Jo now, who was the love of his life just makes me cry happy tears. What a wonderful reunion he had in heaven with Aunt Jo and all of his loved ones. Love you Uncle Odis!
