Pastor Jeff,
Though we've yet to meet in person I send you my deep-felt sympathy with the loss of your father. My late father, A. Glen O'Dell shared your love of God and Mt. Auburn. I rest assured you will be supported with steadfast faith and pride with having been blessed, as we were, to claim such a legacy figure as your dad. God Bless You and your family.
