Rodney Ison’s sister, Opal Ison Caudill died last week in Indiana. Her funeral was held on Friday in Indiana. Rodney was not feeling well enough to attend. Two of Rodney’s sons, Ronald and Mike, were able to attend the funeral. Our sympathy goes out to Opal’s daughters, Mable Jack and Debbie Campbell and to all of her family. Opal always seemed like such a nice lady and was a dear friend and cousin to my aunt, the late Mamie Engle. They always kept up with each other through letters and phone calls even though they lived so far apart.
