So, So Sorry to hear of Odolo's passing. What a Fun Guy.
He and Dee were on a Hawaiian Cruise in 2005 that I was on with the UAW Retirees.
Then Annie May asked me to be the Group Leader since I just started in the Travel Office of Bus America Group Tours. What ???
So we had a Great Time. Idolo even won the Crazy Legs Contest !!!
So Sorry and we pray for him, Dee and the Family.
