Mom was a nurse who deeply cared for her patients and the spirit of healing. She began her nursing career at Dixon Memorial in the mic 70’s. She later moved to Our Lady of the Lake in Baton Rouge, The first hospital down on the Mississippi. I remember her speaking of the water sparkling in the morning as she rounded the curve to the hospital. She said it looked like diamonds.  She assisted in the move to the new facility on Essen Lane where she worked as a Surgical Nurse for years. Her work was rewarding to her. She loved many things and many people, most of all, my dad, her children, grandchildren. She loved the Blue Ridge Mountains and all the beauty they provided. She was an artisan of family heirlooms; her love went into everything she touched. We are so great full to the family and friends that took every step of this journey with us. Dot, Aunt Martha, and my Aunt Ola Mae. You gave what she needed the most, love & time. The 2 things in life that can’t be replaced. Aunt Ola Mae and my mom began their friendship in the 8th grade. It was a blessing to see her at my mom’s side right up to the end. Those kinds of friendships rarely happen these days. My Aunt Ola Mae is rare and one of a kind. She defines the word friendship. Loyal, dedicated, and devoted. Aunt Ola Mae, I can only hope to be as good a friend to someone as you were to my mom. We would also like to thank the owners and staff of Fidelis White Road. The attention, Love and care that your organization went above and beyond in all matters. You became our family; we love and appreciate each of you and you will forever be in our hearts.   Please sign the online guestbook at wwwsealfuneral.com

    When y’all moved to Lakeview Drive, I gained an Aunt Martha and Uncle Calvin! They were two of the kindest and loving people I know. Aunt Martha was such a kind person and caring nurse. She really treated her patients like she would her own loved ones. When Mom was first diagnosed with Alzheimer’s, Aunt Martha was one of the first people, besides myself, that noticed something was wrong. She was so supportive until the disease affected her too. What a gift she was to so many. Please know that you are all in my prayers.
