“My precious son, I have prayed for your recovery for years! Now God has answered my prayer – not in the natural realm, but into His realm. Only God knew what was best for you. Your struggles were beyond any form of understanding. I know you cried out to God to release you from the demons that have haunted you for years in the form of drugs and alcohol. And when you laid your head down, He picked you up into His arms – from the foot of the cross where I had so often left you in my prayers. He cradled you and made you whole and free. I can only bear this burden because I know God has taken you home and you are free from your struggles. I will see you in Heaven my precious son! “ Love, Mom

“My son lived his life without compromise. He was as much a viking as a teddy bear. His passion for his guitar, drums, the woods, river, ocean, his floundering at night, Julie, his life- long love, and his family were a testament of his love in this world. The smell of the top of his head, the taste of a kiss on his neck, and the feel of his hand in mine are forever the whitest things in my museum of recollection. I love my son as much as God gave me place to fill in my heart. My boy’s work ethic was second to none. Jesus, please hold my hero ‘till I get there and give him a squirrel breath rub sometime.”

Love, Daddy

“My sweet, dear, precious brother, you are my heart forever! You will hurt no more! You will fear no more evil! You know such peace and serenity right now. We here on earth can only long to know such a way of life. Oh, to see your new heavenly being. You were always so very handsome, and I can’t even fathom your beauty now. I can see you smiling so large and playing the drums with such heavenly grace!! The Lord made such talent when he breathed breath into your lungs. And now that very talent that he has blessed us with for 29 years, He gets to _____and cherish for evermore! I love you with all my earthly being and I promise you I will see you soon!!”

Love, Andrea

“My dearest friend, I love you! I will forever hold our memories together, and close at heart. I long to hear our music again in heaven. I will see you one day soon! “ Your brother always, Matt Odham

My heart shall rejoice in your salvation!

My flesh will rest I hope!

At your right hand are pleasures forevermore!

As for me, I will see your face in righteousness.

I shall be satisfied when I awake in your likeness!

The Lord is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer. My God, my strength in whom I will trust. So shall I be saved from my enemies.

He sent from above and He took Me!

The Lord my God will enlighten my darkness.

And sets me on my high places.

So that my arms can bend a bow of bronze. I have pursued my enemies and overtaken them!! They have fallen under my feel, For you, My Lord, have armed me with strength for the battle. I beat them as fine as dust before the wind, and I cast them out like dirt in the streets. He delivers me from my enemies! He shall cover you with his feathers, and under His wings you shall take refuge. No evil shall befall you! For He shall give his angels charge over you. They shall bear you up in their hands.
