I remember Lois working so hard with the Swainsboro Band Boosters. We had some good times on Friday nights in the booth at the football games. I have missed her over the years. Prayers are with the family in your loss.

David and Nancy, Jonathan and Lisa, James and Robin;
To you and your families, I send my love and prayers to you and I am so sorry I was not able to make the trip this time. Uncle David and Aunt Lois and Mama and Daddy always had the best times together and we so enjoyed being with you all! We have some great memories to remember of our trips to Swainsboro to visit you all or your trips to Valdosta to see us! I’ve talked with Larry after he got back home to Albany and he told me about the service for Aunt Lois and visiting with you. Aunt Lois was such a good person and so loving and I know she will sadly be missed and the service sounded so lovely. I am so sorry I could not be there with all of you. Love to you guys and I will keep you in my prayers.
