    Nola was such a dear soul – had a good and safe life there while educating so many people during her lifetime while being pampered and cared for by her keepers. …. RIP Nola.

      Thank you for your comment. Yes, just as her caretakers said, she seemed so sweet. Such a tragedy that there aren’t a lot more like her out there right now. Bless her heart.
