To Brad, Buck, and Rhod,
I still can't find the words because Lois was truly loved by me and the entire McLaurin Family. I can't think of one time during my life that you all weren't there at get-togethers, holidays, etc. I'll miss Lois' smile, her love, and her great cooking. Sending my love to you all. Rest In Peace Loisstine! Love Kendall and Family
