Family of Jon OPDAHL, so sorry for your loss. You have my deepest sympathy. Praying for peace, comfort, strength in the days ahead. May the Lord wrap His loving arms around you. Prayers and thoughts too all. Love & Hugs

We are so sorry for your loss and our prayers and thoughts are with you and your family. Every time I think of this and him and his crazy smirky smile, it brings tears to my eyes. He had a kind heart and the most wonderful quick wit. A great driver of that old blue Nova who helped bring many of us back alive after some high school late evenings at 'choir practice". We won't be able to attend but we will be there in our prayers and thoughts.
