I was saddened to read of Lois passing. She was a great lady and she will always hold a special place in my heart. It was a privilege to have been friends with her and Ken. Great friends and neighbors. Priceless memories. I know your heart aches. But Ken and Lois are together again and that is a comforting thought. Marilyn

I am so sorry for your loss. I have so many fond memories of your mom – bowling, hanging out at your house, floating in your backyard pool, going to the lake – just to name a few. I was kind of intimidated when I first met her, but I quickly learned that she was a very warm and loving person. I know she will be missed.
