Dear Odell and Family and Friends of Virginia;

We are richer for our experiences of this fine and faithful woman and saddened by her passing. She is rich in so many things and generous in caring and sharing. As she enters a well-deserved rest we bid her farewell and, "We will see you in the morning!"

Thank you, dear sister, for the example of a life well lived.
