He was always ready to greet with a smile and help when he could. The state as a whole, and northern Mississippi in particular, are better places because of it. He will truly be missed by everyone. ”

“My thoughts at & prayers are with the family of Nolan Mettetal. He served MS with honors during his many years at #msleg Nolan will be remembered for his kindness & calmly, considerate in all circumstances. As a valued colleague, it was an honor to call him my friend. ”
