I’ll alway remember Opal in the kitchen at the family reunion/Charles’ birthday party at their home. I would always come in and ask if she needed help and she would pat my back and tell me to go play. No matter how old I got She had a heart of gold. Our condolences.

Wendy, Joe, Mellissa and Tyler Smith

There was nothing that could compare with 4th of July with Aunt Opel & Uncle Charles in Powhatan Point. The pies she baked were wonderful. Seeing everyone in one place was a treat. Charles, Lois and Peachie – I am so sorry for your loss.
