    So sorry for your loss. Nola was such a wonderful person. She was a caregiver for our mother, Ruth Kelly. She always had a smile. She would make trips to see Ruth even when she wasn’t working to bring lunch to her on Sunday and would stay and visit. We really thought a lot of her. Thinking of all of you during this sorrowful time.

    Dewey, Becky and Debbie I was saddened to hear of your mom’s passing. What great memories we all had of those Marion Daily days. Your mom was a hard working lady. She had sass but also such a big heart. I know my brother Jeff and I were a handful to her back then but I secretly think she loved it. She took care of all us carriers way back then. My thoughts and prayers go out to you and your families.

    Dewey Becky & Debbie – I was saddened to read of your moms passing. What great memories I have of our early Marion Daily days. I think my younger brother and myself spent more time there than we did at home. I also think we might have been a handful at times. Nola was a hard working lady. She had a little sass but she also had a huge heart and was very kind to all us paper carriers. I know my dad thought the world of her. You all and your families are in my thoughts and prayers.
