We offer our deepest sympathy with the passing of dear Loisteen. She was a jewel, a true Texas pioneer. We enjoyed her many stories of the early days in Sundown with her neighbor Mary Dot. I can visualize them chatting over the fence line about the latest news - long before there was a Sundown. We loved spending time with her and listening to her stories and are thankful for her long friendship with Mary Dot Frazier Clark.

Love you all - God Bless -

Marilyn Clark Coates, daughter of Mary Frazier Clark
