I remember Opal, Delman, Johnny, and Jimmy from the Cumberland Presbyterian Church. I haven't seen Opal in decades since I haven't lived in Arkansas in decades; however I have never forgotten her love of the church and love of the Lord. She was a role model in my growing up years. I am sure she was loved and that she is missed.

Mrs. Opal was an amazing lady. She loved life, her family and her Church. I am proud to have known you all my life. You were such an asset to our church. God bless your family at this time. Hope you are driving shiny Cadillac in heaven!

My best memory of Aunt Opal was her laugh, I will always remember her laugh, it was wonderful. She was a wonderful person ❤️.

Sweet Aunt Opal (most people called her Sally but I have always called her Opal). She was always kind, fun loving, and had a wonderful sense of humor. She seemed always ready to go on an adventure. She was truly one of the great generation. How she survived being raised with all those boys was a miracle. She will be missed by many.
