My Connections with Aunt Lois ...

We talked about this day;
That it goes God's way.
Just as all the time; once we
started to chime.
Getting outside of our self,
Putting all the past stuff on
the shelf ...

Only, if only it was so easy, only to learn to let go completely. If we pick and choose we end up in each others' shoes.

Finally, realizing that it is about our part in God's will.
No longer will you feel ill.

In spirit and body, Aunt Lois;
YOU--ARE--FREE!

Lois may you fly high in paradise, you were such a kind loving women. Anyone who entered your home, you treated them as if they were your own children. Always offering to cook, feed, and anything we needed she was always willing to be there help and put a smile on your face. Thanks for all the memories and treating me like one of your own. Rest easy 💙🖤🙏🏻

The first time we met was at the Gulls retreat many years ago. The many struggles your life path took you, you no longer have to fight. God has called you home, so now you can rest. To the family my prayers go to you. May God hold you all in his hands. Respectfully, JoAnn Kaminski and Marie Chappell
