I enjoyed my visits with Nola at the nursing home. While Dad was there he was right across the hall from her for a while. We talked of many old times. A sweet lady that will be missed. Glenn Cummings, December 10, 2019 So sorry for your loss, she was a kind person when I worked out at the Leonard Manor. Your family are in my thoughts and prayers.
