Little Lois; anything but little. An extraordinary woman, whose beauty surpassed her on all levels. Her smiling face, and unconditional love for all of us made her part of our family. She will be greatly missed, yet will always be loved and remembered in our hearts. Love always, The David & Mary Staff.
