My sincere condolences to the family. This sweet and kind woman was my next door neighbor when we lived on Lyford in Memphis. I was prenant with my second child and had some complications during this time. As a mother of four, she was my "Big Sister" who was always there with just the right words of encouragement. I learned so much by just watching her mothering her treasured children with kindness, faith and a great sense of humor. Fly high my friend......

When I came back into work the day she passed, I just sat in her room and cried. Opal was definitely my favorite person on the hall and I feel like she felt the same for me, she would ask when I was coming back to me and everyone else all the time, I knew her whole routine and definitely did more for her then I would everyone else, we technically ain't suppose to have favorites but I couldnt help it, I just felt such a strong connection with her specially after 2 years of taking care of her, I even knew david and always admired him for coming up here everyday before covid hit and ate with her. She would even tell me felt like she could breathe when she knew I was here. i know I'm not actual family but i feel like my own grandma just passed and it really hurts to even walk past her room. I really did love that woman and I wanted to come to her funeral so badly, but I didnt realize it would be 5 hours away and I wouldn't have someone to get my daughter after school but my heart is so with you guys!! The world definitely lost a good woman!! I took a paper print off picture of her and david and I really hope you dont mind that I did but I will always always cherish it and the memories i have with her!!!!!
