ADD A MEMORY
Janie Hester

July 31, 2018

What a great tribute to Opal from her family. I met Opal as a neighbor, on the same street, in Heritage Grand and immediately loved her sweet spirit and beautiful smile. My favorite memories are from seeing Opal and Rhonda sitting on their porch and walking down for a short visit and a hug. May God comfort her loving family as you remember Opal and rejoice that she is now in her heavenly - forever home. My husband and I will be out of town on Wednesday and regret that we will miss her memorial service. May God bless all those who gather to remember her; we will be thinking of you.
With Love, Doug & Janie Hester
