My dad took this picture of my Aunt Lois in 1961.

Daniel West on Mar 10, 2020

My heart is saddened to hear of the death of Aunt Lois. She was a beautiful lady with a great personality. She loved her family and friends. She is a truly a treasure in my memory. Her generosity and hospitality were second to none. I loved the days as a boy we would go to visit Al and Lois for Thanksgiving and Christmas. I am praying for the family. They were so very privileged to have had parents so precious. God Bless you.
