Dear Lola – All the goodness you did here on earth were noticed by all. The love you had in your heart for the people around you and the way you took care of the ones that really needed you have lost so much. You brightened the life of everyone who knew you and put a smile on the faces of the people that you just passed. Now you are with our Father in heaven and all your pain is gone. You and my wife Rita are together now. Lola please rest in peace and the ones that love you will see you again one day
i was sad to hear Lola has gone home. We spent time together during HS. She had time to visit and bring a smile to my mom(when she was becoming housebound). Lola always brought a smile to those around her, and had time to lift up or cheer those in need of encouragement. there was no arrogance, or snobbiness towards younger folks, less fortuneate folks, or people with limited abilities.
God bless her family and friends as we remember her, and cherish our time with her.
