    To the Bodell Family,

    I realize this note is 2 years after the passing of your Dad. My Dad, Eldon Tibbits aka. Birdie, always considered your Dad his oldest and best friend. I just found out that your Dad had passed within the last week. My Dad passed away in 2004, but I know he would have wanted me to pass along our condolences. I know how hard is to lose your Dad and how much you miss him. God Bless.
