Thank you for sharing pictures of him and his family. I got a chance to work with Nolan at Southern Standard. I got to hear stories about his family and dogs. He showed me pictures of his weight lifting days. Nolan and I and Donnie (another coworker, retired) all met for lunch after he retired and I was glad to see he was liking retirement. Haha. With Nolan sometimes you just never knew. I enjoyed working with him even thou one time he stated yelling he wanted a new packer and I was yelling I want a new operator. But we figured it out. He would call me a dreamer and I would call him a dream squashed. All in fun. With love and peace I’ll Miss you Nolan.
Verna.
