It was our pleasure to have met Opal in the late '90's when she visited us in Montana with my uncle, Wayne Johnson. She was a special lady and a great correspondent. We so enjoyed her letters. Our condolances to the family. Thank you for calling to let us know about her passing. Jack & Shirley Smith
