I am so saddened to learn of Lois's passing. She was such a terrific lady. I first knew her for many years in her professional role at Citizens Bank. She was a very caring, genuine and classy lady. She was kind to everyone and was a lot of fun, and always smiling. My prayers go out to the family for comfort, peace and strength. I'm sure there was a great reunion when her spirit left planet Earth. May God be with each of you.

There are a few people that have had a major influence on my life, and Lois was one of them. I've been so fortunate to have shared her friendship for over 45 years. She was a teacher, mentor, and best friend when I needed one. She will be dearly missed. Rest in peace my friend.
Prayers and condolences to Sheryl, Dana, & Royce, during your time of loss.
