Our hearts and prayers go out to the family. Lola was one of the kind, she was beautiful! Her love was strong, pure, and unconditional. Her words of wisdom, kindness, and love will be us forever.
It is a heartfelt time for all of us because of her passing. But knowing that God has called her to be with Him in His Kingdom gives us strength & peace.
Rest In Peace, Lola. We love you!

Mommy Sally was loving, caring and protecting. She always welcomed visitors to her house. She always helped family and friends, emotionally and financially. I’ve known her since 1968 when we lived in Kalaclan. I know she is in a better place and she will always be in my heart.
