  1. Nola Faye, William, Gus and family my prayers are for you and your loss. I loved her and will always. We had many meals and memories. Now she is in no pain and in Heaven with the rest of her family.

  2. My sincere condolences to the family at this difficult time. May you all seek God for comfort, peace, strength and support (2 Cor 1:3).

  3. She was such a sweetheart. Always a smile on her face.  She enjoyed the church services our church, Maplewood First Baptist had at Holly Hill on Wednesday mornings.  Ms. Ophelia always enjoyed the music and the message, Bro. Rex had. I will miss her hugs and her beautiful smile.  Prayers for the family.

  4. To the family of Mrs.Ophelia. She was a lovely lady & a good friend to myself, my Mom, Gloria Swire, and my husband Darrell said she was his true friend. She will be greatly missed. Love Mrs. Ophelia always.

  5. On Sunday night's at JBBC we would let the congregation pick out a song or favorite song. MS Ophelia ALWAYS chose ILL FLY AWAY and while she sang she"d clap her hands and jump around. I told her once she was as spry as a cricket. O, how I loved to see her face light up and almost wanted to stop playing just watch her joy!
    She was a person that I was blessed to know.
    To the family, I have no doubt she is with Jesus, but our earthly hearts are sad.
    Especially to Mrs Faye, Rodney and Jana, we love you and U are in our thoughts and prayers at this time.
    Greg and I love you very much!
    " when I die hallelujah by and by, I'll fly away". YOU GOT THOSE WINGS DIDNT YOU OUR LITTLE CRICKET!!!!!!

  6.

Faye Rodney and Jana our hearts are especially heavy as for the all the family but knowing you three I know that you realize she's in heaven jumping around like a little cricket at the feet of Jesus at the end of the song it says when I die Hallelujah by and by I'll Fly Away Miss Ophelia you got your wings didn't you little Cricket now soar
