Dear Richard,

I it is with sadness we hear of the passing of your mother. As you may remember, my parents Harold and Maxine Land were very close friends of your parents; our dads working together at Continental, moms neighbors and housewives, both couples socializing together. I too was very fond of your parents and looked forward to seeing them walking down the alley from their house to my parents on Superior Street. I would sometimes be visiting with my folks sitting on the porch and would listen to the repartee amongst friends. I would hear often of my mothers plans to play golf with your mom... I think they were on a Tuesday morning league at the the Kokomo Country club. I remember Lois being one of my mom's closest friends. Your dad was a real card and I loved talking with him and listening to him and appreciating his humor. My mom and dad both passed about a month apart (Oct and Nov) of 2005. I have trouble comprehending how time seems to escape us so quickly.... We wish you well and extend our expressions of grief. We hope you will heal with time. It was so generous of you to provide home and support to her since her fall. I hope the time was meaningful. Our thoughts are with you. Kent and Jeanette

Lois was such a wonderful lady and good friend to my mother Patsy Roberts.
Despite long lives, we are never ready to lose them.
