To all the loved ones of Lois, I just want to say "the Lord has gained an Angel in Heaven" She has been a close friend of mine for nearly 50 years, a very quiet spoken , loving, and an irreplacable friend !
I don't want to dwell on our immediate sadness, for I know she is rejoicing in the Lord in Heaven, and someday, we will be reunited in Heaven.RIP LOIS
