    Dear Opal, I will sorely miss you and your beautiful voice! You were always so loving to me and greeted me with open arms at our every meeting! Your heart could be seen through that fabulous smile of yours, and it was beautiful!
    My mother, Peggy LeForce ( nee ) was the daughter of Bill and Norma LeForce. She was always excited when it was time for the family reunion, so she could see you and the family! I can still remember visiting your parents and eating some of the best food ever made on the planet!!!
    I love you , today and always.!

    Belinda ( BJ ) Neeley ( nee ) Stahl
