So sorry to hear about Lois's passing. She was a good neighbor to us for many years and we did manage to keep in touch after she and Jim moved. She will be missed.

So sorry to hear of your Mom's passing. She was a dear friend to me. She helped me plan my wedding 35 years ago. We met taking college courses for Belleville Area College. We were friends ever since. She was a beautiful person. I will keep your family in my prayers. God Bless you.
