Family my condolences to all of you. I love you as if you were my own family as I got to know you as you visited with Lois. She was a special lady. Always caring about all of you and sharing her joy with me when ever one of you had a special event happen. She would always want to be home in time for Easter with all of you; well this time she was home for Easter with her family that had already gone home to be with the Lord. We will all miss her here but know that she is in a much better place now. My love to all of you, Linda
