  • Grandma was the best grandma anyone could ask for. She showed her love for life and God through her actions. She never had anything bad to say about anyone and always showed love towards anyone that came into her path. She is dearly missed, but I know I will see her in heaven.

  • Opal was the best grandma a person could ask for. She was a role model just by the way she lived. She never had a bad word to say about anyone. She was the most selfless person I have ever known. I love her and miss her greatly.

  • I wish I had known Opal better. I loved her ready smile and her beautiful countenance. She had a serenity that comes from knowing and walking with the Lord. She raised 3 daughters who honor their parents and serve the Lord. That’s a wonderful legacy.
