Memories Timeline


  1. Please know my thoughts are with your families at this time. We all have many memories of the fun and laughter our families shared in our growing-up years. Mom and Lois Ann loved to reminisce of the ‘Good Old Days’. I’ll always remember Lois Ann for her big smile, laugh and her many hats. It’s hard to lose all the people we had so much fun with over the years.

  2. So sorry to hear of (cousin) Lois death. The family has my sympathy and may god comfort you during this time. I am glad I was able to see and visit with her at the Littauer reunion this past summer.
