I remember your Mom, as being so caring and sweet. Wish I could be at her memorial, but I'm so sorry that I can't be. Just be assured that you and your whole family will be in my thoughts and prayers. Peace be with you and your whole family, at this sad time.

We are so sorry for the loss of Lois. We remember Ivan and Lois well as they were staunch members of our church here in Odessa. They have been and always will be missed by family and friends, but know that they are together again in the presence of our Lord.
