I knew Ms. Lois from the nursing home. I've spent my days sitting with her and just listen to her talk. She was such a beautiful person inside and out and always so nice to all of us. We will miss her dearly.

Ginger, I am so sorry to hear of the loss of your sweet mother. In my mind, she will always be sitting in the pews at the Methodist church while we rehearse for Messiah. God bless you and all your family.

Ginger and family, I am so sad that your sweet Mother has passed, but I know for sure she is rejoicing in heaven. Your Mom was a loyal friend to my sister Virginia Finney for many years. I enjoyed all the good times Lois, my sister and I had together over the years. She was dearly loved and will be missed. Prayers for comfort and peace now and the days to come...God bless.

I have no idea why we took this photo or what we had spent the morning doing together, but this picture has hung on the kitchen bulletin board in ny house ever since. I enjoyed spending so many Fridays with my great, great Aunt Lois. Not many people even know their aunts from 3 generations back, but I am sure thankful I got to know mine. Aunt Lois, I'll miss you and all of our laughs, car rides, and meals together. Thank you for being such a light to everyone you crossed paths with and thank you for making me feel important.
