Nola is one of the finest examples of a Proverbs 31 woman. She loved Earl with all of her heart and was not afraid who knew it. Her home was a spotless showcase, yet you felt instantly welcome to pull off your shoes and have a visit as she would talk and laugh with you for as long as you stayed. She was fiercely protective of Rick and so proud of his accomplishments. She fought for his independence at a time when being the mother of a person who had challenges was harder because there weren’t the programs available we have today. She was a good friend. She was the other of “Flo” the two of them were always together and were the best team. Seeing them showed me how women should support and not knock down each other. To me, she was a role model. Someone who loved the Lord, loved her family, loved her church, loved her friends and loved them well. I hope one day, that can be said of me. I will see you soon Nola.
