Sheila, Ann, Amy,& Anita so sorry to hear about your Mom she was a nice lady I always liked talking to when saw her. My prayers are with you and all of your families. God Bless.
I’m so sorry for your loss. Lois was my first cousin. It had been many yrs since I had seen her. I hope someday to travel to the area where everyone lives to visit and go to the cemetery where my family is buried. Some of my Aunt Oma’s family live in OH. I don’t see them either. Leatrice and Ruth came to visit this past year and about 3 yrs ago. I’m Malta and Garnett’s daughter; I’m about the same age as Lois’s youngest sister, Barb. You all have been in my prayers.
