I was saddened to learn of the death of my friend, Odilia Dank. She was my mentor when I was elected to the House of Representatives, from District 90 in 1998. We shared one of the smallest offices not so affectionately called, "the vault" Her humor, patience, wisdom and integrity served her constituents well. She was an outstanding legislator. She was respected and accomplished great things for the education of our Oklahoma youth. It was my honor to serve with this fine Oklahoma Stateswoman. My wife and I now live in Houston, Texas. We send our sincere sympathy to David and her family as they grieve this great loss.
May you be comforted by your faith, family and friends.
