We were sorry to hear of Lois's death. I had great respect for her as an educator, and proudly gave her retirement talk for the WEA. Also, I respected greatly the fact that he and her husband did wondrous things to bring the world's peoples into closer cooperation and understanding. Certainly they left a great legacy that their heirs can be most proud of.
