    To the whole famiy of Opal Edwards:

    I am sorry for your loss. Opal worked with my Mother – Marlene at the post office many years ago. Bob was my school bus driver and I visited Opals bus driving route as I went with friends to their home after school. I also visted Opal a few times at the Fanning Centre. She was a lovely lady and though your loss is great – I know Heaven will rejoice with her there.

    I regret I will not be able to attend the services as I am getting over pneumonia/ flu
