I am sadden for the loss of Lois. Being an old Dyess boy I remember Lois as a pretty girl in high school thru the eyes of a 9 or 10 year old boy. I visited in Elwin and Lois's home in Dyess many times.I was always glad to see them at the annual Dyess Reunion as was many others. They were a very well liked couple.May God bless youall.
I am so sorry for your loss. I remember Lois as always having a smile on her face and being happy. She would never turn anyone away and would welcome them in her home. I pray for Godâ€™s strength for the family in the coming days ahead.
My heart is so heavy for both of you. Lois was so special and I have so many fond memories growing up with your family. I loved your Mom and Dad and my thoughts are with youâ€™llâ€¦. Love youâ€™ll forever!!!
