Dear Charles and Susan and Family,

We are extending our sympathy in the death of your wife and mother.
As close friends with Lois and Charles beginning in 1954 with activities with the the Eastern Star organization of St. Marys, Oh, when Lois and Charles were matron and patron, with my mother, Blanche (Coil) Holobaugh as deputy grand matron of OES, their outgoing and unselfish friendship has been treasured.

My sympathy to Charlie and Susan. I have fond memories of living across the street from them in Mendon. Lois was a very giving person.
