Opal was a cousin to me. I remember when she was married and I "babysat" with her daughter, Ellen. After they all moved to California, I think I saw her there once a very long time ago (1967?). I think Opal looked a lot like her own mother. I do remember how pretty she was and had such a very gracious personality. She was the firstborn in her family of siblings, many I had the opportunity to spend time with. It is sad to say goodbye to someone so nice.
