    I loved this sweet lady. We lived in the same subdivision for a while and we sat beside each other in the church choir for a few years. I enjoyed her good ole common sense and wisdom. She will be missed. Praying for Jill, Jack and the entire family. God Bless.

    Opal helped “raise me” at old Edgefield Church and then at Brush Hill. We sang together in the choir at both places. Opal and Homer were such fun to be around. Heaven is enriched by her presence.

    Jack & Jill, my thoughts and prayers go out to you and your family. Knew your Mom and Dad for many, many years and we loved them dearly.
    I will always remember her and her butterflies. I have one in my jewelry box and I think of her everytime I see it. Love to you all.
