I will always remember as a child going to visit Aunt Opal and Uncle Ebb, Bobby and Calvin with my Mom and Dad and brother Dave. Uncle Ebb was our Dads brother.

I remember we had a great childhood and our visits to their house were wonderful.

I also remember Aunt Opals laugh. I can't explain it but if she was in another room you knew it was her laughing.

And she was a great cook.

She will be greatly missed and was loved by all her family.

Our family visits will live on in my memories as well Pam. They were so much fun Just last night Peggy mentioned Aunt Gins Mississippi Mud Pie !! What good times we had and I thank the Lord for them. Peggy also made scalloped potatoes in honor of Mom because she always made them for any cookout or special occasion !!
