Lola Brown, a.k.a. Turtle Mama, grew up in Bardstown, near Nazareth.
She remembers her family would walk to church every Sunday morning at 6 o'clock, and coincidentally, it was walking home from church where she first met Ernie Brown Sr., the Turtleman's father.
Lola was 16 at the time, and she had been in Holy Cross visiting her sister, who'd given birth three months earlier. While her husband stayed home with the baby, Lola and her sister went to church.
