Mrs. Mullins -- it was always hard for me to call her "Opal" -- was a wonderful, loving, sweetheart of a woman. She was the mother-in-law to my sister, Missy, who is married to Mrs. Mullins' son, Chris. From the time I first met her almost 35 years ago when I was in my twenties, Mrs. Mullins always, always, from the first day, treated me like a son. Later when I joined the Army and visited Kentucky on occasion, no matter how much time had passed by she always welcomed me as if I never left. She was such a kind woman, and I loved her for how she loved my sister, taking her in very quickly as her own daughter. I will always remember a few things about her when I think of her: her quick smile and laugh, her taco salad which was the most delicious you'll find this side of the border, and her awesome never-ending love she had for her family. I will truly, truly miss Mrs. Mullins, but I am content and at peace in the belief that God has received this wonderful woman, mother, and wife in His heavenly Kingdom.
