Dear Jennifer and family, After numerous letters to Aunt Lois these past few years asking that you be included in the correspondence, I am deeply saddened to find her obituary online today as I was searching for some way to communicate with you and find out how she was doing. Both Sandy and I had been writing to you Mother over these years since Mom passed trying to keep up the family link. For us particularly, this is the last of the "older" generation. It is such a deep loss that our families, for whatever reason, did not stay in touch and now we have none of the folks that attempted to do some communication. Sandy and I have often talked about your mom and dad's wedding and the times they came with grandma and grandpa to OKlahoma. Remover the time you came on a trip and you and I went bowling? So many years ago......condolences to you and your family.

Jennifer My condolences to you in the loss of your mother. Truly sorry I was unable to get to the funeral home to pay my respects to you. My memories go back to the time your mother came to visit us on the farm when she was in the Navy. Over the years, as our lives evoled we were not in contact with each other. Know she was very proud of you and your family. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

Jenny....I am so sorry about your Mom. She was such a vibrant, lovely person. Her presence would light up any room...so gracious and welcoming. I know you and your family will greatly miss her. Thinking of you at this difficult time.

jennifer, I agree with Diane's comment that "Heaven gained an angel" as Lois was always concerned about others and a grand lady. She has been a family friend for many years and my sister, Carol Baker Taylor, joins me in our condolences to you and your family. She sure loved you and your children, always so proud of your accomplishments.

Dearest Jenny and Family, I am so sorry to hear of your mother's passing. When I fondly remember Aldringham, you, your mom and dad are always a part of every one of them. I lovingly feel she was my second mom for so many years! So loving and gracious! She was a dear friend of all of us Montries, and will be greatly missed. My prayers are with all of you at this time. Heaven sure did gain an angel! Love and hugs to you Jenny. ~ Diane
