Lois was always such a joy to be around; we enjoyed having her at our youth dinners. Her sense of humor was so genuine!

Andrea, Cecilia, Mark and all. So sorry for your loss. Mrs. Wickham was my bus driver when I was in school. I was the last one picked up in the morning, and the last one on the bus at night. Her and I would have some nice conversations. Loved that lady. My heart is breaking with the rest of you, and am sending my love to you all. May God be with you at this most difficult time. She will be with you always.
