My father, Paul Marks 93, knew Lola May as a Postmaster for years and then later as a fellow resident at Rosewalk. Paul was the Clarks Hill post master while Lola May was postmaster in Dayton. While caring for my mother (also in Rosewalk) a few years ago I got acquainted with Lola May. She was a great friend and comfort to me. My mother had Alzheimers and Lola May was the understanding friend I needed. Mom passed away October 2007.

I loved calling her my ""Gardening Angel"" because she was flitting down the sidewalk to her garden when she spied me crying at my parent&s apartment exterior door. She stopped, talked, listened and hugged me with all the warmth and love she had. We drew close and I always looked for her when we came to visit Dad. I live in a Chicago suburb.

In her honor I wrote a short play entitled ""The Gardening Angel"". She will always be my Gardening Angel...the one who I know will see to my weeding and watering. I will always hold her in my heart. I love you, Lola May.

I remember Lola well when she served as postmistress in Dayton. I remember one summer day, I think I was still in grade-school, a little puppy got hit by a car right there in front of the post office. Lola May came out and tried to give the puppy mouth to mouth - I was so amazed by that act of kindness and compassion. She was a wonderful lady.

A wonderful lady has been taken from us....I remember her as a small child through my adult years. She was always so positive with a smile on her face. She provided the best ""rabbit feast"" annually that we all looked forward to. She was a rock for my Mom when she moved to Rosewalk Commons, of which I will be eternally grateful. She&s now dancing with Frog, Dutch and Bert.....and that makes me smile. Lola was loved and she will be missed.
