Always remember the special time at the lake with Aunt Lola and Uncle Charles at my parents, Richard and Rose! Such a wonderful time with the family visiting and eating!
Loved going to gospel sings with them. She is rejoicing with the Savior and family! Love you, praying for Uncle Charles and the family.

You were always a shoulder to cry on, an ear to whisper to. Someone to laugh with, the best lunch date. I will always remember how you would come over to mom's as I was learning to cook lol, and never gave a discouraging word. You were always an inspiration. You and Uncle Charles were there for me and the kids when I felt so lost when Daddy passed. I always loved going over to your and Uncle Charles'. I will miss our midnight chats. I will definitely miss your encouraging words and your prayers. I love you always. I can only hope that I will be just as great and wonderful person that you were.

Aunt Lola was a very sweet and kind lady. I cherish the times spent with her and her family during the summertime as a young girl. God has a special Angel now. May we all find peace and comfort going forward. Lord I ask that you be with Lola’s family in their time of grief. God Bless you all.
Love, Pauline
