I only just heard today that Jon Odegaard died. I was a girlfriend to him quite awhile ago, back when he had his beautiful furniture design store in the early 90s.
I am in shock and feeling great sadness upon hearing the news of his untimely death.
I would like to share my deepest sympathy to his family and those he left behind and know that there is tremendous grief from the loss of a family member and friend, a man that had a huge heart. He was a sensitive soul and I remember who he was and I remember his best. Jon Odegaard could be likened to the song "Starry Starry Night" sung by Don Mclean and in his memory I will keep in my heart.
