  2. Bodie was my Great Great Uncle. My grandpa is John Bodart. Even though we aren’t close to the Bodarts, I knew Uncle Bodie. He used to come into Uebelhor after he bought his car and we talked about Grandpa Bodart and my papaw all the time. he came in everyday for about 2 weeks after he bought the car asking questions on it. he later came in just to talk. He was a good sweet funny man. He will be greatly missed.
