Joe Odom, Lamar Odom’s father, died on April 20. The former NBA player paid a touching tribute to his father on social media.
“Thank you to all who extended love and prayers to me during my time of bereavement,” Lamar Odom wrote on Instagram on May 3. “I appreciate every single one of you for sending me good energy.”
He went on to say, “Life is not promised. My pops and I had our differences but at the end of the day I knew he loved me and I loved him and that’s really all that matters. I encourage you to take some time and make amends with family and friends, tell someone you love them, smile a little more, laugh out loud, give your heart to those that deserve it because nothing is promised but death.”
