    I want to say thank you for every message, and all of your thoughts and prayers. I miss dad every day and night. I have so many memories of dad and me. Working together at the Forum theater, going to the Peabody in Memphis, riding the Amtrak train all over the east U.S... Dad taught me how to drive and taught me to love fast cars, like his Thunderbird s and Mustangs. Too many memories to write down. He was my hero, he was my Dad. Good bye my dad and thank you my friend... Kent Brahms Hale O'Daniel

    Through all the activities done in his class, Mr. O’Daniel had us be active participants in gaining science knowledge. He always tried to make us curious to learn more, which is something I have always tried to do with my middle school science students. He was an inspiration for me.

  3. Wynndel King, Jonesboro says

    I had Mr. O'Daniel at Valley View and enjoyed him as a teacher and always enjoyed running into him in the years after high school. He was always nice and friendly. My sympathy to Kent who we all knew a lot about as he was growing up and to the family.
