Dear Don and Family
I am so sorry about your loss. I had planned to come to see Lois on Monday afternoon when I got word she has passed. What a wonderful woman. She was a woman of the heart- caring and loving. She was also so thoughtful- always helping to keep me updated about the people we loved. I will miss her phone calls.
Prayers and blessing.
