Steve,
I was so sorry to hear that Aunt Lois had passed away. As the time passes it seems as though family grows even farther apart and we do not see each other as much as we would like. I remember playing cards with Aunt Lois at the family gatherings and loved to hear her laugh.
Her Christian faith and love for her church and family leaves no doubt that she has found a new life in Heaven.
I am so sorry that I am not able to be there, but you and your family have been and will continue to be in my prayers.

Steven, you will not remember us but we want you to know that your folks were very special people. Your Mom helped us to feel welcome at church when we were first attending. We share in your loss. Duane and Peggy Creek, Leo, IN

What an elegant lady! Lois was such an essential part of our music program at New Haven UMC for many years. We so much enjoyed being a friend to her. I know she had some health issues, but that never stopped that beautiful smile. We will miss seeing you, Lois.

Dear Stephen,
I have very fond memories of your Mom. I was very lucky to grow up just 2 doors away from such a sweet lady. I remember one summer that I spent helping your Mom catch Candy after she got loose and went for a joy run. :)
When I got older, I remember sitting in the room with Mom and your Mom listening to them talk and how proud she was of the man you became. She was loved to talk about what you were doing. She was very grateful for all the things you did for her. She often told Mom that she wouldn't know what to do if she didn't have you.
I'm sure at this time she and Mom are catching up. I also think that your parents are once again neighbors with my parents.
May God bless you and your family. I will always carry fond memories of your Mom with me.
