It broke my heart to see that Mrs. Lois passed away. We worked together at Southwest Elementary School for several years and she was a pleasure to work with. I saw her a couple of times at Senior Village and I talked to her and let her know who I was. On the second time, she gave me a little smile and that made me feel good. She will be deeply missed! Please know that she and her family are in my prayers for peace and comfort at this sad and difficult time. God bless you all...
