  1. My dearest cousin Bodie. I have very fond memories of you, back at MoMo B’s home in Ebarb/Noble LA. As a youngster, I would look forward to seeing our out-of-town relatives (you & your sisters) come home for holidays, summers and family reunions. I remember you as being very polite, kind, humble and caring, just like my brother Rod. You were the apple of your Mom’s eye and always put a smile on your Dad’s face. After your Mom’s passing, your wonderful sisters filled in for her and then for your Dad, when he also passed. They took exceptional care of you! You have touched the hearts of many and will always be remembered as Bodie, a sweet blessing to our family. Love and Prayers, Your 1st Cousin-Connie Ebarb (daughter of your Aunt Bernice)

    this time of sorrow. May he rest in Peace.

  5. I will always remember the sweetest smile you always had. The little chuckles you made when a joke was told; even laughing at your own jokes, which would tickle us even more. You were a kind soul. Whereas some of us take life so serious and stay so busy with too many things in our lives…You loved life at its fullest …you really knew the meaning of loving every minute of it! My heart goes out to you Sandy and Evette. Take comfort in knowing that your brother was well taken care of by you both and how he knew how much y’all loved him! He is with your mom and dad now. Where there were two….there is now three watching over both of you. Love, Sheli

  6. Love and Prayers to all of you.

  7. Sandy and Evette. My thoughts and prayers are with you both. My sister, Shawna, and I have such great childhood memories of playing outside with yall and Bodie. Making the swingset our own “Six Flags” or raking the leaves in the backyard into a floorplan and playing house. I remember after your mom got her Cougar, yall went to Louisiana. When yall got back Bodie was excited to show us how y’all used the seat belts as cb radios. My first car was a 1969 Riviera that my dad bought from Bodie. Love the memories! Praying for Bodie and yall.

  8. Evette, May God hold you, Sandy and all your families close and give you comfort. You are such a strong lady, and I love very much! ❤️❤️❤️????????????????????????????????
