So sorry to hear of Aunt Opal's passing. I love her and Uncle Vernon very much. I have many fond memories.

Stacy (Graham) Hoggard

I loved Opal with all my heart. She and Vernon opened up their home and hearts to us many years ago. Opal was a very special friend to me and my family. She was a lovely Christian lady who shared Christ with how she lived and how she loved. I will remember her hugs, her strawberry cobbler, her hush puppies she made for the FBC Holt fish fry, but mostly her love for me and my family.

Diana Wright Calvert

Our deepest sympathies to Vernon and the entire Graham family. Our prayers are with you and we know the love you shared will bring you great comfort at this time.

So sorry to hear of Opal's passing. My family lived on one end of Seven Hills Road for years while they lived on the other end. Dad and Vernon worked together at the post office for years. They were kind enough to visit when Mom passed in 2014, and it was so nice seeing both of them.
