My thoughts and prayers are with the family of Lois Pierce. She and I were involved in Stephens' Ministry at Sardis Presbyterian Church. Lois was a truly compassionate and loving lady.

My late mother in law, was also a dear friend of my family since meeting them in 1952. My parents and they were best of friends and bridge partners...Lois signed my confirmation bible, which I still have. Lois was as fine an example of a CHRISTIAN as there could be. She was a huge influence on my early life, and for that I will always be grateful...I'll miss you mom...Blessings and peace go with you on your next journey.
