Lois was always my first Christmas card and I will miss getting that hand written note from her. Every year, she and Danny would visit my grandparents (June and Baxter Dixon) on New Years Eve and New Years Day to celebrate and watch the Rose Bowl parade! And after my grandparent's passed, they continued to come to DSM to visit my parents/family. Lois and Danny were such fun and loving people and I know they are in heaven surrounded by all those that loved them and passed before them.

We've had the honor of knowing Lois & Danny for many years. For her lifetime, she was my Mother's (Elsie Smith) best childhood friend. We were able to make the trip to Hot Springs in September 2017, so Mom could visit Lois one final time as they are/were both well into their 90s. It was a blessing to see the two of them "catch up" and reminisce about the good old days. She was a dear person, and will be sorely missed. We are comforted knowing she is now with her Danny.

I never met Lois in person, but she was a dear friend of my mother's. Lois ALWAYS remembered my Mom's birthday and other occasions since her hobby was sending cards, so I became one of her "pen pals" when Mom passed last year. She always wrote the nicest notes and I could tell she was a sweet lady and wonderful friend. I will miss her but know she is at Peace and one of God's Angels watching over us.
