Brother Dean & Family:

My mind flashes back to fun times during holidays back here in Elmira. Lois and I go way back to Southside High School and Franklin Street Church. I am so thankful that I was able to visit at Easter in 2012. Had a great time and learned a new game. Distance hasn’t stopped us chit-chatting now and then. Hope to talk more often. My deepest sympathies to you and the kids. Vaughn and Leslie add their condolences as well and remember Lois fondly.

God Bless, Love

We always enjoyed visiting with Aunt Lois on trips through Hendersonville. We loved her stories and will always remember her laugh. She was a great lady who will be missed.
