I worked with Opal since 2001, She was a wonderful person with a good heart and Spirit! I loved our talks and her enthusiasm for life. I told her one time she was an inspiration to me and I will truly miss her. My prayers are with her family and especially the Grandboy she spoke of often with much love. May God Bless each of you and be with you through the days to come.

Miss Opal sure was a nice lady. I worked with her at Ellison plant. She loved working and never wanted to talk about retirement. She told me about one of her grandsons that loved staying with her. She often talked about our Lord. She loved her lipstick. And I loved her. She will be missed.
