The family of Opal Eileen Kuhl has received the following condolences.
The loss of a loved one is a very sad and heavy load to bare. May you find comfort at Acts 24:15 " And I have hope toward God, which hope these men also look forward to, that there is going to be a resurrection of both the righteous and the unrighteous." That is wonderful to know that we will be able to see our dead love ones again thanks to the promise of the resurrection.

Our sincere condolences to Bill and the extended family. Opal Kuhl drove me to Central Jr. High School along with Bill every morning, and she was one fo the finest people I have ever known. I also remember her when she would join with Mike and Bill at the RAM's flying field, and from living across the street for my entire childhood. May her memories be for a blessing...
