Rest In Peace Opal. You taught me a lot You will be missed at River Valley Prayers for the family??
My thoughts and prayers have been with Opal over the past years. It has been hard this year not to be able to visit her since March because of COVID 19. She always amazed me during our visits because of her sharp memories and wit. I pray for peace and comfort for her family. I will miss her but she will not be forgotten. She will always be a part of Valley View United Methodist Church.
With deepest sympathy and love, Betty and John Fortenberry
