I had Known Opal for a year and was blessed to tuck her in at night. I spent a lot of time watching her family visit and such a special Love that has been the way Opal had lived and taught. Opal's faith in God was evident in her life at all times I seen her, she had expressed the will to go home with Her Heavenly father, but was saddened to leave her wonderful family behind. Often I would tell her how special her family was and that she could rest assured that they would join her when God was ready. She spoke with such pride in her son Travis and Shirley was her hard working Daughter. I've worked in Long term care for several years and haven't seen such support from a family as this wonder bunch. Opal was one special lady and my deepest sympathy goes to all her family and don't ever wonder how much she love all of you and peach homemade ice cream She spoke so much about her grandchildren and the great ones. She keep her memories and had her mind till the last day which was a blessing from God. A hard worker to do what ever was ask to have a complete life throughout. I will miss her dearly and the family that was so faithful to visit. I know she has already heard "Well Done Thy Good and Faithful Servant". God Bless my prayer are with all of you.

With a Rejoicing Heart paired with sadness,
