Uncle Bob and Rick (Little Rick), I'm so sorry to hear of the passing of Aunt Lois. What great memories I have of spending time with your family. I have fond memories of Aunt Lois brushing my hair, Uncle Bob teaching me to draw dogs, and time spent at the cottage (among many other things).

So sorry to also hear that Randy has passed. My deepest condolences for both of your losses.

With Fondest Memories,

Gayle Wiersma McCrath

Bob and Rick, My condolences to you in the passing of your wife and mother. Lois was my Calvinettes counselor and I still remember crafts we made. When we were neighbors I remember being home alone and being so scared of someone knocking at the door. Lois came over and said everything was ok. It was just a person going door to door selling apples. Keeping you in my thoughts and prayers. Sharlene
