When Lois children were young we lived around the country block from them Philip and Mary Ann would come over for an afternoon or we would go to there house and I remember Lois was a hard worker we loved the bridge that you crossed to get to the house I remember her mother and daddy her mother crocheted a blanket for me and my sister I also remember the hat her daddy wore all the time my great grandfather wore one to. Those days were so different than today. Prayers for ALL your family. God Bless
