Dear family, you have my heartfelt condolences. May God the Father of tender mercies (Psalm 83:18) strengthen you all during this difficult time and may your cherished memories comfort you as you await His loving provision when you may be reunited again with your dear loved one again (John 5:28,29).

You were a wonderful aunt and always made me, Jamie and our kids feel special whenever we got together. I enjoyed listening to stories of your adventures in shopping with Trish. I know how much you loved spending time with your family and especially your grandchildren. I will miss you greatly Aunt Lois.
