I know how sad all of you are to have to deal with accepting the death of your Mom. Just try to remember the good times and what a great job you guys did to keep her in her home, knowing she had no desire to go elsewhere. I will truly miss my dear friend and my special cousin. May she rest in peace. Love and prayers.

Curtis, I am so sorry to learn of the passing of your Mom. I thought so much of your Mom every since I worked at Dr. Kuiken's office. My phone has been acting up for two days. So, I am just seeing this message on FB. The entire Nolen Family has my deepest condolences. I would have definitely been at her funeral if I had known of her death sooner.
