Lois, you were truly an inspiration, one I will never forget. You fought through so many personal tragedies, yet through out walked in God’s a believer. As I look now at your picture, I remember your easy smile and delight in all that is feminine. Necklaces, shiny rings and fancy hair clips. Your greatest delight for some years, was a visit to Shoppers Drug store, via Paratranspo. A Mecca of treasures waiting just for you. A smile definitely comes to mind as I remember dozens of doughnuts and the like hidden in your oven. There were never too many watches...
RIP Lois, where your children await you. Godspeed.XX
