Memories Timeline


  1. I first met Ms. Lois (as we knew her) when I was a new volunteer at the Jennings American Legion Hospital. Even though she had health issues she took her job very seriously. I have seen her at Wal-Mart and always got a big hug from her. May you be comforted in knowing that she was appreciated!!!

  2. Kathy and AD, We are sorry for your loss and will be praying for you all.Your mom was a special person. I always enjoyed making syrup pies with her at church.
