Sending my love. I have fond memories of Aunt Lois and she was such an important person in my Dad's life. He always spoke of how kind she was to him as a boy and how she always made time for him. I am so sorry to hear of her passing. -Tricia

Sincere condolences to you all! Am very sad to hear of Aunt Lois' passing. She was always kind to me and I know my dad loved her dearly. She was diligent in sending me a Christmas card every year, even the years I didn't send mine out. I am very sorry for your family's loss.
