  1. Opal was a sweet lady who will be missed. I especially remember the fun we used to have in the late 60’s riding the bus from Vernon to Chipola every day. We had lots of fun. Condolences to the family.

  2. Mrs Yates was a sweet and loving person. Her compassion helped my children adjust to elementary school.

  3. Opal visited our home often when I was young. She was the sweetest thing ever. She was a beautiful woman who was dedicated to her family. She will be missed. My prayers to Jerry and Larry.
