Through it all, she was so COOL.

Lois and I met at LACIL. After learning that we shared a name (Cunningham), we looked forward to our discussions and found common ground in discussing hair and fashion. She earned the nickname "Jazzy" because she was always a fashion statement. We both loved to bargain shop and would tell each other about good deals that we came across.

Though she may be gone, she has left me with great memories. My sincerest sympathies are extended to her family.
