I never meet this officer, but I have heard many stories about him and I know he was a fine young christan man. He had chosen a job that he had loved so much that had unfortunately led to his early death. i would like to say to The Odom Family that we appreciated your husband and father for serving our parish and will always remember him for losing his life at such an early age.
