Bob, I would like to extend my sincerest condolences to you, your children and grandchildren. I was very sorry to hear the news of Lois’s passing. I still remember back in High School, you talked me into taking Lois to the Homecoming Dance, and you took another girl. We were sitting there talking, and I noticed you and Lois staring lovingly into each others eyes. I knew then that you were going to marry each other. I never forgot that moment. Take care Bob

Bob, I am so sorry to hear this sad news. Lois was such a shining light in high school, not only smart and pretty, but empathetic and caring. She was one of my favorite people in our class. I feel grateful that I was able to come to our 50th reunion and see her, and you, once again after all these years. Her death is a terrible loss, not only for you, but your children and their children, her siblings, and her friends. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. Janice Nuckols
