Tina and family, I am so sorry of you loss. I didn't know it until I seen it in the paper. John passed away on August 28 and I found him. I talked to him Tuesday night at 11:30PM. It has been very difficult for me. I am sorry I was unable to show my respect for Opal. She was a lovely person. My God Bless you as he has me. Ann
