I met Leola when she came to visit Chery Hirte, my friend and co worker. She was an incredible lady, full of knowledge about children and interested in teaching techniques of today. She asked such profound questions and had deep insight into the "big picture" of life, morals and family values. I am so grateful to have had the chance to meet her. What a talented lady and servant of the Lord!
