    Edsel, you were a light of hope to me the whole time I was growing up. And you continued to give me hope when you so bravely faced your condition with such a positive outlook. We shared so many memories of my dad and your loyalty to my family. You helped him so much as the best accountant he ever had. I will always treasure your friendship as you so devotedly gave to mine. My prayers are with your family. I hope to know them one day.

    Dear Odom Family, I am so sorry for your loss. Your father was a great man. A real family man. A man of faith. He taught me how to skate when I was nine. May God give you the strength and patience through these times. I miss you all.
