Randy, Leanna, and family, I am so sorry to hear about Aunt Lola’s passing. She was such a wonderful person, and always welcomed anyone who came through her door with open arms. I remember those Daytona Beach trips too!!! I told Susan the other day, I bet she gave Dale the biggest hug ever as soon as she walked through those gates!!! May her memory live as strong as she did. I love you all!!

My Daddy, Charles Plemmons (MMH Engineering Dept) and mama, Loretta loved this lady! When he helped me to open an account at the hospital's credit union, that love got passed on to me. She was never too busy to speak when I went to the credit union, even if it was just a wave from her office. She will surely be missed!
