Jim and family. Thoughts and prayers are with you. I know you will miss dear Lois very much. I have missed her sweet friendship since leaving SC for FL. She was a special friend to me during my 12 years in SC and I especially enjoyed going to Bible Study Fellowship with her. She is with her Savior now, and rejoicing there.
