So sorry to hear the news of Lola's passing. Sending thoughts and prayers to the family. I met Lola at a flea market when she came to my table. She wanted to try the new Reversalist cream for her face. We became friends that day and our friendship continued over the course of 11 years. She was not only a client but we enjoyed chatting about deals at stores and about Rosie her dog, and her grandchildren and just about anything else. We shared laughter and tears at times. She was a special person who cared about everyone. I will forever cherish the moments we shared. Keeping all of you in my prayers during this difficult time. Ginny Roach
