OPAL --
"All of Nature's splendour
seems to be reflected in the
manifold opulence of fine Opals."

Was there ever a woman
more perfectly named
than this precious soul
-- 'Opal Adams'!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Mrs. Adams - shy yet determined;
devoted and fun-loving; willing
to bear difficulties with a smile.
A brother could have never hoped
for a more devoted sister. A
little kid would yearn for
someone like Opal Adams to
be on their side! Life-long
friends called her 'Number One'!

She was:
*Best buddy to her pal, Maxine -
*Made the world's greatest
coconut and chocolate pies
(with extra flakey crusts) -
*Played canista -
*Loved watching Basketball on TV -
*Adored her grandsons,
whose gigantic pooltable she endured,
as it took up most of her
family-room's floor space
(it had been built by Mr. A.) -
*Made the most delicious
lemon-pepper chicken -
*Tenderly cared for her
azelea bushes -
*A serious Methodist -
*Drove a (land yacht-sized)
green Pontiac -
*Had a huge, fighting yellow
tom cat named 'Big Boy' -
*And, (as an 80yr old woman)
was willing to jump out of bed
on a whim at 3AM (still in her PJs)
ready to go downtown and pick up
a newspaper with a special
article in it!

She was the best of the best.
This was a marvelous woman!
