    Lois was my dear friend and part of my life always. She loved,laughed with many of us but always held a spot in her life to love, laugh and cherish me. She opened her home to me always and encouraged me with confidence, even when times felt at their bleakest. I cannot think of a more loving and supportive friend. We shared so much joy and she made sure we found a smile in any situation. She was the best a mother could ever be to her daughter and best friend Lisa. Lisa and Lois were and are humanity’s real deal. They complimented each other and us all through life. I know she is watching over Lisa and will never let her from her sight. We take comfort waiting to see her again.
