    Sympathy to the O’Dell families. Prayer for the LORD to give strength now and the days ahead.
    Lois was a pretty lady. I remember her from school days. I was in the class of ’60.

  2. My deepest sympathy goes to the family. How we look forward to the hope given to us in the Bible at Acts 24:15 of the resurrection of our loved ones. We also have a wonderful future to look forward to, when Jehovah God does away with mourning, pain and death forever at Revelation 21:4. I hope these scriptures can bring the family some comfort during this time
