      • She was my Friend. As a teen she sat quietly beside me in class. When I would ask her a question she would share in a soft tone voice. Then one day she asked me, “are you my friend?” I had never been asked that, “Of course I am your friend.”
        As a professional, I had the opportunity to see her years later. She introduced me as one of her childhood friends. My reply, “You are still one of my friends.” It may not have been professional in my line of work to reveal such a status, but I did.
        It is still true today, Lois is my friend. My heart ached as an adult for the trials life had given her. She will always be my friend and I am so thankful that I had the opportunity as an adult to let her know that she had a place in my heart
        Rest in peace my dear FRIEND. I only wish I could have been a better friend.

  1. Took care of Lois and saw her almost every day. It’s going to be so different now not seeing her in the halls or at the nurses desk with us. Prayers for the family!

  3. I’m sure Lois Ann is singing in Gods choir, right beside her momma Lois and I went to Old Decker church together for many years. My dad was the preacher, hers a deacon. We shared so many good times and always loved to sing!I hadn’t seen her in years but always thought about her. Wish I had been able to hug you goodbye, sweet friend. Rest in peace Lois Ann, and save me a spot in that choir!
