In remembrance to a good friend, God Bless You Pinky, we love you. Friends to the end, we all miss you. 2624 Porter Ave, #204, Fullerton, CA 92833, David Hogg.

I was with Odell at time of his death. I will never forget you Odell, I was a Marine in Odell's unit in Vietnam at the time of his death. He was a big man, he wore a size 16 boot. I have lived the past 33 year thinking of Odell and what happened to him at the time of his death. Would like to be contacted by his family if that is possible. I will never forget how brave and kind Odell was while we served together in Vietnam. He was a wonderful friend and I dearly miss him and our times together. William H.(OLD MAN)Queen. P.O.Box 1613, Lexington, Ky 40588. My phone number 859-333-1766.
