    I have many precious memories of O Dee. He and Dora Mae were such precious, precious people. I can recall his preaching and singing. I remember him as a man who loved his family and his Lord more than anything. He’s with Dora Mae now, and oh what a reunion they are having up there now!!! He has perfect sight, no pain, and not a worry in the world. I know without a doubt God told him, “welcome home, ye faithful servant, welcome home” I heard the song “I’ll be waiting for you” by the McKamey’s, and I’m sure your precious mama was indeed waiting for your daddy. My heartfelt prayers go out to every child, every grandchild, every sibling. This man did indeed touch lives. That is such a blessing and a legacy that he left!!
