Aunt Opal's Funeral

Today we drove over to Paris for Aunt Opal's funeral.  She died last week and would have been ninty-nine on December 31.  She was Dad's oldest sister.  It was good to see many of the Eborn family in attendance as well as many of the people we know from the Bear Lake area.  It was especially good to see Nina and Steve, Ellis and Jeannine, Reed and also Mark.  Iris and I were  thankful to be there as well.  It was a wonderful tribute to a great lady.  Our cousins, Opal's children, Maxine and Wendell, were the speakers and Aunt Helen Rae gave a short history of Aunt Opal's life.  She will be missed, but she lived a long and full life and I'm sure is rejoicing in the presence of Uncle Hugh, Grandma and Grandpa Eborn, her already departed siblings and many friends, pupils, and associates.  I am convinced that there is good blood flowing through the Eborn family veins.
