    Tom and I were very sad to learn of Opal’s passing. She lived a very long and fruitful life. I always enjoyed talking with her as she was always very knowlegable about what was going on around her. It is always sad to lose a parent but I am sure you feel that she is now in a better place.

    Your friends always,

    Tom and Von Boggess
