Take two! First one seemed to get lost in cyber space.

How do you share memories of 45 plus years and not take up a whole page? You can’t! But what I can share is how much you are missed!! Our time together making plans of future retirement will never be completed, the 3 are now down to 2. In my heart I know you are in a much better place, but that doesn’t heal the soul. Your laughter is silent . I will think of you often, miss you like crazy but you will always be tucked away in my heart! We have been through life’s journey together and always supported each other even when we made each other crazy. Rest now my dear friend your fight is over! I’m sure I will see you again! Love, Bonnie

I'd like to share two things -

First, the honesty of Lois, one day grocery shopping with Lois, we were each in the motorized shopping carts, after checking out and rolling along in the parking lot, first she put my groceries in her car then she helped me into the car, as she was putting her bags in she realized that she had steamed shrimp in the bottom of her cart that weren't rung up! uh oh....but she knew I was exhausted, so she took me home, then stopped back at the grocery store, went to the courtesy counter with the shrimp and asked to speak to the manager who was courteous and said to her no apologies are necessary and enjoy them!

Second, her humor. 4 years ago, while vacationing with Lois and Bonnie in Delaware we were in the grocery store Lois got so excited about frozen chocolate covered bananas. when we got in her car she had to immediately get into the bananas which she shared, I have to say she acted like a little girl, well while driving she missed the turn into Bonnie's park!!! the laughter while driving went on for a while!!! At the end of our vacation on our Lois drive home , Lois got tickled about something just as we were approaching the Bay Bridge, as the giggles were continuing I made a comment about the tool that was in the pocket of the car door, Lois says one end works for breaking out a car window if we become submerged under water really, we're crossing the bridge, then Lois says Jack if we go off the bridge you break out the window and Bonnie will save us!!! I'm not sure how we made it across the bridge, I think it was one of the funniest gut wrenching laughs ever!

Lo Lo, thank you so much for loving my family unconditionally. You were a very kindhearted, generous, and loving person who will truly be missed. We will miss the fun times and I will miss our fun talks. Watch over everyone as you ride your Harley in the sky. May your memory be eternal. God Bless❤️

Lo Lo was one of the most caring and compassionate people I have ever met. She loved her family more than life itself, and I am going to miss her very much. I cannot be there to celebrate her life this week, but when I look at pictures and decorations she gifted to me in my dorm, I know that she is always close at heart. I love you, Lo Lo.
