I miss you, Lucy. Love Saddie Shonda Powwll, November 22, 2020 What a truly tragic loss of a god lady. Nov was so kind to me when I began work with the County, over thirty year ago. She showed me the ropes and we shared many a laugh. God keep you in peace, my friend, The world has lost a great woman, but heaven has gained a new shining light. I know we would rather have her here, but she is in the arms of our Lord. Leigh Gordon-Riley, November 22, 2020 This was shocking and heartbreaking to me. Nov and I went to school together since 2nd grade. We played a lot as young girls. We reconnected on fb several years ago. We had made plans to meat for lunch and things kept coming up and it never happened. Nov was an encourager to me. She always made me feel good about myself. I will miss our talks Nov. Thanks for being my friend and we will have our lunch together someday. Praying for her family and all that loved her. RIP my friend
Melba Lansford, November 20, 2020 Aunt Nov, I have no words. I have always remember those things that you said to me when I was at my lowest. You are my Aunt, but you were also my 2nd Mom.

I went to school with Novaline and rode the bus together, and you know those bus rides were long back then. She was a nice and quiet girl, I'm sure that life changed her some, but it sounds it was all good. I had not seen her in many years but have great memories of her . My thoughts and prayers are with the family. She will be missed.
