Lois, one of the most loving and caring people I have ever known in my life.   While I could not be with you in person, I was always with you in spirit.  I never saw you without a smile on your face and you gave the world Melanie for which I thank you so much.   To be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord, healed.   I know Nelson was happy to see you and I look forward to seeing you both again one day.   Melanie, I will never forget Lo.  I pray for your strength and continued bravery in the face of such a loss.  
Always a friend,

Please accept my sympathy for your loss.  Your mother had a wonderful smile and laugh, and so did Mr. Ressler.  They were among my favorites at The Rose Bowl.
Best Regards,

Lois was a good neighbor, always with a smile on her face.  How proud she was of her family, and we neighbors were all impressed with the loving care she received from all of you.  She will be missed but not forgotten.  Dave & Gloria Goldy
