I was so sorry to hear of Ms. Oda's passing. I knew she was having some health issues but we are never ready to say goodbye. I enjoyed being with her often at her business and I counted her as a good friend. She has been missed and will continue to be a void spot in the heart of those who loved and enjoyed all the good things she did for the people of our town. Heaven will surely be worth it all !

Drexel, David, and Dennis, I am so sorry to hear of Oda's passing. You know I was the first person she met when she moved to Santa Claus in 1977. Your family and mine were neighbors and friends. I truly cherish all the times I drank coffee with Oda and all the things we did together. I love you all and will miss your mom. Treasure your happy memories. God bless you.
