It is hard to believe you've been gone for 2 years tomorrow~ We miss you so much and not a day goes by that I don't think about you! It has been hard without you. You certainly would be proud how everyone is doing but miss sharing all this with you. Our hearts broken, and our lives will never be the same because you are gone. I love you mom! Starr

Hello mom, miss you like crazy. I am so proud of Kat I wish you were here to see how she has matured. She is warm, sweet, sensitive and loving and I know you would be proud. Today Kat and I came across the Robert Frost poem book you introduced me to. The memories of laying in bed with you reading to me flowed. Thank you for giving the love of poetry to Kathryn, I know she got that from you. Thank you for all the memories I have of you it is what keeps me smiling when I feel like crying. You were a light in everyone's eyes and I love you.

Needed another entry to shine the light over your life. I feel you are with me and Kat, Dad, Starr, Mike, Ry, Dj, Amy, Alexa and Little Beauchamp soon to be. We all miss you for different reasons but we all love you. I am sorry I was not able to build more memories with you after we moved to Killeen, I look at your pictures all over the house and still cannot believe you are not here. I cherish the time with you,and I hope you always know how much you are loved. Thank you for being the mom you were and thank you for life's lessons that I will carry on and hand down to my little girl. Forever, Vicki Lyn

It has been almost a year and I think about you everyday. There have been so many things happen in the past year and I want so badly to share them with you..especially the times when I have needed your guidance. Mom, I have dreamt about you only to wake up and realize you were not here on earth but it reassures me you are watching over us. One day we will be together but until then thank you for the wonderful memories. All my love, Vicki Lyn

Lois was such a wonderful lady. She spent her life serving the military and helping so many to accomplish their educational dreams. She was so personable and so much fun to be around! I will sincerely miss her and I wish Jim and the rest of her family the constant joy of her memory. Jeff Cropsey
