    Fond Memories of Your Mom

    To the Family Of Mrs. Madge Odum, I was sorry to read of the passing of your mother, Mrs. Odum. I provided medical care for her while she was my patient at Port City Medical Associates. Even though she was unable to speak to me all was said through her eyes. Her eyes told me she was happy, content, and being well taken care of by her daughters. Her smile lite up the room and she always brighten my day when she came in. Her smile also told me she was loved deeply by her family. I'm sorry I did not know her health was failing since I no longer work at Port City. May God be with you all during this difficult time and I will keep each of you in my prayers. Sincerely, Marshelle Powell, PA-C
