I will be traveling half way across the state and back to attend the funeral of a very dear lady.
She made it to 95, so she had a full life and I didn't even get to meet her until she was in her seventies I believe but we hit it right off.
Even with a forty year age difference, we used to sit and chat for hours.
A very nice woman with a strong will like they used to make, she wasn't in the fertilizer business if you catch my drift. Named after a gem of rare beauty.
She will be missed.
Rest in peace Opal.
