It is fitting that I begin my memoirs on Memorial Day, the day my life changed forever. I am now a widow. I felt sad and yet liberated, at peace, and yet anxious about the future. I knew I had to give up my beautiful home in Naples, Florida and move back to Minnesota, but was leaving memories of my married life behind.

My name has always been a source of curiosity or amusement. At a time when other girls were named, Rose, Shirley, Mary, etc., I was named this strange name of Odelia. The neighborhood kids made fun of me and called me “Simp O'Dill” after a comic strip character. For some reason my name appears as Odell Lins on my grade school report cards. I'm sure my Dad wrote it this way as he addressed my Christmas gifts (Santa) with the surname O'Dell. In high school, I dropped the letter “L” and now refer to myself as “Odel Lins.” Substitute teachers would mispronounce my name much to the amusement of my classmates. After high school, I referred to myself as Del Lins. In high school I wore my hair similar to the movie star Veronica Lake. The wave over my eye was not as pronounced as Veronica's, so I was called “Veronica Puddle” by the girls. I am often asked what Del stands for. To avoid a lengthy explanation of my name, I usually say it represented “Delightful” as a child, “Delicious”, hopefully, in middle age, and “Delirious” now that I am old.
