Condolences to the Family

I will miss “Aunt Lois'” sweet, twinkling smile in the Landis Homes dining room.   She always expressed appreciation and had such a look of pleasant recognition when we made eye contact.  And she never turned down an offer of raspberry icecream.  I would tell her little tidbits about her neices, Gretchen and Greta, and she would often ask me about them.  Many others who served her in the dining room have told me that they will miss her too.
