To the Givens family: So sorry for your loss of Lois. She was a good Christian lady. I stayed in her home a few years ago and she made me feel at home. She prepared a tasty breakfast that I enjoyed. May the Lord be with you and comfort you during this sad time.

We also knew her through our friendship with her daughter, Tammy!
May God Bless and strengthen her family and close friends!
