    I’ve been so blessed to have been able to make a connection, to love and care for her in the later years of her life. She was my light in my life when I came to work. She was not my job, she was my friend. Her spunk and wit and talks we had will never be forgotten. She was a true fighter in life. I love you Lois! May you Rest In Peace! ?????? Heaven has received a angel!!
