We are saddened to hear of Miss Opal's passing. We wish we could have spent more time listening to her life experiences , especially her time as an original "Rosey the Riveter" during World War II. She will always hold a special place in our hearts. We know she is in a better place and will re-unite with her one day. Ralph and Linda Bell
