We are very heartbroken of the death of my dear Aunt Lola. She had a heart of gold with all of the good times we had with her. She was very loving and talked always about her grandchildren n her children, a very proud mother!! She also taught me alot about being smart, working, and doing whatever you have to do to be on top of your game. I am going to miss her so much!! We always laughed, cos she was so funny. If you were upset you could not stay upset for long cos she would have you smiling and laughing along with her. Rest in Peace my sweet auntie. GOD makes no mistakes of whom HE claims and HE wants you in HIS loving arms FOREVER! LORD take care of my aunt until we see her again.

Lola has been my friend as far back as I can remember. As a matter of fact I remember her starting in my 4th grade class.

Lola was a cheerful person and she would always make you laugh...especially in Mr. Smith's class.

I know you all will miss her and so will l.

I will always have great memories of knowing Mrs. Wright. She was the first person at BCDC to take me along on a transport. A ride I will never forget. She was a kind lady who spoke her mind. Thanks for the memories !! RIP Baby Cakes
