Lola was a very special and loving person. I loved taking care of her and she meant so much too me.

I had the pleasure of knowing Lola during the past year of my employment here at CSL of Radford. Although she was on the quiet side, I always found her to be deceptively funny. I think it might have been the smile she would give me during our interactions which seemed to indicate that she knew something that I didn't. I always found Lola to be very genuine and a sweet person. We will all miss Lola here at Commonwealth. My sincere condolences to her family and friends.

Suella and family. I was so sorry to learn of Lola's passing. I'm so happy our mothers had an opportunity to become friends while in rehab. They both have had long lives and had a lot to share. I know she will be missed by you and your family. May her memories be with you and bring you peace.

Our condolences go out to Barry & Sue, she was an awesome lady, so very talented. I hope they have yarn and knitting needles in heaven. RIP Mrs. Wolfe, you will be missed, but we find comfort in knowing that you are now reunited with Mr. Wolfe. Go fly high, until we meet again. Please catch up with my mother and dad.

Dear Barry and Sue,

Oh my, how your parents were loved by my parents (Reese and Alice Ratliff). Jack and I are still using a calendar that your Mom made for a fall craft event at First Christian many, many years ago and my Mom gave it to us. What precious memories we have in our hearts of our parents. Richard and Lola are together again with Jesus for a grand a celebration! Our thoughts and prayers are with you.
