Nova and I were friends from elementary school through high school at Anthony Wayne. I was her Maid of Honor at their wedding. She was always willing to do for others what she could. I will miss her terribly.

I had the astonishing good fortune of attending elementary and high school with Nova Mae. She was a rock at Anthony Wayne High School; Never frightened by a game score, never feared an examination, and looked forward to the future in confidence. I also attended St. Richard Saturday Morning Catechism with her all through our school years. We would discuss theology on the bus going to public school, mostly about marriage, our main concern. Whenever I returned home from the army during leaves I would greet her in church. She would smile and announce to me a new baby! "Well, you always paid attention in catechism class," I would reply. Nova Mae was a pleasure to know, and especially to grow up with. --Michael M. Elling in Sharon, Tennessee.
