All my life some things were a constant with Opal: 1. She always went to church and led a Christian life. 2. She always kept her hair fixed and her makeup on. 3. She always wore nice clothes and jewelry{costume, mostly}. 4. She always smelled good even after she got old. Heaven gained a gentle soul yesterday--My Aunt Opal. Love, Linda Goins Cole Pocola, Ok

I'm so glad you and Grandpa Riggs introduced me to God/Bible. I remember when spending the night always reading the bible and saying our prayer before going to bed. I will forever remember your smile and the Love you had for me and I for you. I know your rejoicing with Mom in heaven, Love to you always....DeLaina
