Light a Candle

My condolences in the passing of Nola. Nola and I were in the same class in BB from Kind-Grade 12. Her family lived not far from us so I was either there a lot or she was at our place. A couple of years or so ago when we were back in BB my husband and I went to visit her in her home on G St. She showed us her flowers and seemed happy to be there. The next year when I called her she had had a stroke. But we had a good conversaton. She will be missed. Mary Cole)Pitman
