Dear Family,

I just wanted to share some of the thoughts that I shared with my own kids when I sent them an email in regards to Aunt Lois’ entry into eternal life.

As kids we loved going “up to the country” to see her & Uncle Bob. It was one of the highlights of my childhood. They always had a bunch of hunting dogs…I remember ol’ Blue, a bloodhound, the most because he ran loose. The rest of them were kept in the kennels & runs.

When you kids were there, the pond was dry but I remember it being full & sometimes we got to go out in the rowboat. It was always peaceful but there was something scary about it, too, with all of those trees coming up out of

the pond with moss dripping from the branches.

They had an xylophone, too. We never got to play around with it long enough!!! It was in the corner to the left as you came into the living room from the front door. Your dad mentioned the electric corn cob this morning. He always got a charge out of that one! It sat on the bath tub next to the

toilet. He also mentioned at Christmas, Aunt Lois had a toitet seat cover that had Santa covering his eyes when you raised the seat. That is where I got the idea from to make one for our house. It hasn’t been used for several years.

Well enough of my rambling. I just needed to share. I love you. I wish I could be down there with everyone but it just doesn’t work out right now.

Lots of Love,


P.S. Bet Aunt Lois has already shared some of her more recent “spicy” jokes with the rest of the family in heaven.

I am very sorry to hear about the passing of Aunt Lois as I fondly remember her. It has been many years since I have seen her but her kindness and friendship to me and my sisters will never be forgotten.

I will be praying for her loved ones to find peace and know that they will see her again one day.
