I worked with Lois at AAA and she was one of my favorite people to stop and have a chat with. Our many conversations we had in the break room were always full of laughter and I'll not forget them. Keeping you all in my prayers.

Loosing someone you Love is like losing a part of yourself you miss them, and you miss who you we're with them nothing will ever replace that. The ones we love never go away, they walk beside us even on this day, unseen, unheard yet always near still Loved still missed and very dear. I pray for your family's strength and just know you're not alone.
