    What a beautiful child. What a lovely child. It’s hard to imagine God needed her more in heaven than here on earth. Our God makes no mistakes. May Nola’s beloved memory and light never be extinguished. God’s blessings to you, her family and all that knew and loved Nola.
    I didn’t have the privilege of knowing her, but even in death, she touches people’s hearts.
