I fondly remember auntie Lois and my mom in the kitchen making lefsa and talking up a storm. We will miss her and uncle George. She was always good to our family and welcomed us with open arms. We will miss her.
I’m so sorry for your loss. I had the lovely privilege of spending the first 10 minutes of everyday, for the last 4 months with Lois. I was there to spend time with someone else but she got the biggest smile when I would walk in so I’d pull up a chair, hang onto her hand and just talk with her. She’d call me her sunshine ☀️. I looked very forward to that visit everyday, and sat with her for a bit on the morning when she passed. I’m thankful I got to know her.
