Dear Uncle Burt and All, We were so sorry to hear of Aunt Lois's passing, and we want to express to you all our deepest sympathy. Aunt Lois was always a smiling, encouraging presence at family gatherings, happy to see you, asking about how you were doing. She had a pleasant fragrance about her, a kind manner. I was always impressed by how often she and Uncle Burt got together so often with my folks (her sister and brother-in-law). That was a big encouragement to them when my dad was so sick for a number of years leading up to his passing. In Lois's last years, whenever I would come to visit, she always had a big smile for me. She will always be a happy memory in my heart. God be with you all, Brad and Melanie

Lois was the best neighbor. She was warm, friendly, always gracious. I have wonderful memories of Lois and Burt on Scott Street: playing bridge( you and Lois taught us how to play bridge),last minute picnics in our backyards, our kids playing in the back yard, helping each other with projects. Those were the good old days.So sorry for you family. Love KarenStrine
