Many have been the times that I heard my Dad say: Thank God for Lola
Alfers. For many people she made
going to the Courthouse much more
pleasant and much less traumatic.
We all carry her around in many respects. She lives on in all of us
who had the good fortune to know her.

My sympathies to the family and friends of Lola Alfers. She was a very dear person to me and my son Bradley. She was very loved by Bradley especially. God's rest and peace always. We love you.

Lola never "wore" her illness. She was always beautiful when she arrived at church. She was an amazing woman. You are a lucky family to have had her as your inspiration.
