    It just doesn’t seem right for her to be gone. She was such a vibrant person, so alive and always willing to help.
    She will be so missed. Like she would have said, our love and prayers to you all. GOD BLESS you Aunt Opal.

    I worked with Opel at Oscar Mayer as her supervisor and remember her as the most dedicated person to her job ever. She was such a sweet lady.

    Mrs. Opal was one of a kind. Hardest working lady I have ever seen. So happy she is resting at the feet of Jesus.
