Will sadly miss this loving caring lady so much. Always looked forward to her letters she sent me over the years. Will cherish the wonderful memories that I carry in my heart when I used to go and stay with my Aunt Lois. Especially when they lived across from the ice cream factory. . Will miss you dearly Aunt Lois. Forever in my heart.

My deepest sympathy Paul and Sherry. I chatted with your mother a few times when I was out working in the garden and she was still able to walk up the street. Such a lovely lady. My prayers and thoughts are with you and your family.
