I had the pleasure of getting to know Lola when she lived at Cedars in Mardrid. She was such a kind, fun, and compassionate lady! I haven't seen her for over 7 years, but I think about her often because she was the kind of person you just don't forget! I pray her family finds peace and comfort and may her memory continue to live on! God Bless!
