I attended church services with Opal and her family during the 1960's. We all attended the Grandview church of Christ at the time. In the late 1960-1970 I stayed with Opal following the birth of one of her sons. I helped with house chores and with her new baby. I always enjoyed visiting in Opal's home. I think one of my fondest memories while visiting in her home was learning how to make home-made pizza. My friend Opal was a beautiful lady inside and out. Rest in Peace Beautiful Lady.
