    My Aunt Lois was one of the most vibrant and adventurous people I knew in my life. She and Uncle Stan introduced my whole family to Lake Tishomingo. She and my mom, Ginny, would talk about their days at Kirkwood High School. Aunt Lois would tell us stories of how she helped to introduce my mom to my dad, Charlie, and how the four of them would hang out when they were all married. She was like a second mother to me, and there was not a closer friendship than she and my mom. I know she was ready to see all of them in heaven, but I will still miss seeing her and hearing that voice when I would go to visit her. She was such a wonderful example of the person I strived to be in my life. Love you, Aunt Lois.
