    My sympathy to all of you who loved your mother and grandmother Lois. From her obituary, I see a life lived with love of many things-I love that she belonged to a club of “Lois”” and that she liked impatiens (as my mom did, too). I know that she will be missed but that her spirit will remain ever strong among you. Blessed be her memory.

    Peace to you,
    Patty
