We are saddened by the passing of our beloved neighbor, James Everett. Tears of sadness and joy stream down our faces. Sad because we can no longer see him outside mowing the lawn, working in the yard or reading the paper early in the morning. We feel joy because we know he is with his beloved wife and best friend forever, Odell whom he cherished every day of his life. Rest in Peace James and Odell, you are finally home.

John and Carolyn Jones

Sandra, So sorry to see the obit. of your father and to also learn of the passing of your Mom. I met your Mom many times at the Blackwater Baptist Association meetings as she was a messenger from Great Fork. Blessings and prayers for your family during your time of loss.
