I have and will miss seeing and talking to Lois when she would come into the bank. She always had stories to share with us. Rest in peace Lois.

Please accept our condolences as you deal with your loss. When my daughter died, I found comfort in the Bible verses: Acts 24:15 “And I have hope toward God, which hope these men also look forward to, that there is going to be a resurrection of both the righteous and the unrighteous” and at John 5:28 “Do not be amazed this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out” How thankful we can be for the sure hope of seeing our dear loved ones again.

Les, my heart goes out to you. I have so enjoyed working with you and Lois through all of these years, and appreciated your stopping by to say hi when coming through town. She was a wonderful woman with a big heart and just such a firecracker! I will miss her smile and sass, laughter and love, so very much. I consider myself blessed for the friendship that has developed between us throughout the last 10 years since I first met the two of you. Sending strength, hugs, and prayers your way.
