    Prayers to the family. Nola will truly be missed. Her sweet smile and cheerful personality was one of the highlights of my day. I always looked forward to seeing her each day and caring for her when she needed the extra help. She will forever be in my heart and will also keep my memories of her close. God Bless and know that she was loved by many.
