Nola was always a bright smile when I would speak at Park UMC, and she was always willing to play for me if I wanted to sing . The heavens rejoice with her presence

I met Nola through Quincy Medical Group and she was so sweet and always so kind to me as a struggling single Mom. She always gave warm hugs, kind words, and encouraging words. I'm glad she's reunited with her Charlie, but I'm so sorry for your loss.
