The following poem. reminded us so much of Opal:

Give And It Shall Be Given
I helped a neighbor up a hill
And found to my surprise
I was near the peak I sought
And closer to the prize
I helped a blind man in the dark
And found to my delight
I arrived where I was going
As I led him that night
I gave a gift to needy children
And found to great joy
Each child I helped become to me
Like my own girl and boy
I cheered a lonely derelict
And found by healing grief
And touching him to fill and cheer
Christ touched me with His peace.
