Nanny Opal was always a care-giver, caring for her family and others before herself. She loved her family dearly as well as all animals. She will be greatly missed even though the family knows that she is free of pain and in the loving arms of the Lord.

The family is especially thankful to Sherry Reed, Karen King, Kelly Sweeney from Carilion Hospice who did so much to make her last days on this earth easier and more enjoyable and to help the family though this time of life.
