    Randy,so sorry to hear about your mom. I always thought your parents where nice to all us neighbor hood kids. I remember your parents letting us come over and watch your color TV and remember one Christmas when you, Paul, Vicki,and myself put on a Christmas play for both of our parents.They also never seemed to get upset with us kids playing football or games in your yard.They were special neighbors and friends.My thoughts and prayers go out to your family during this difficult time.

    Tom and I send our sympathy to you and your family, Randy. I remember seeing you Mom in Ben Franklin when I was shopping. She always looked so classy and had the most endearing smile. Know that we have you in our thoughts and prayers.

    I remember your mom from the Northport Ben Franklin Store. I started working there on the store’s 25th anniversary and worked there until the day they closed. She was a fun lady to work with. She always attended our gettogethers after her retirement. Always with a smile and laughter. I won’t be able to attend the funeral due to the virus, but please know that she is remembered. God be with you in your time of sorrow,

    So sorry to hear about Lois passing away. She was one of my grade school teachers. I will always remember her beautiful smile and happiness. She was a very special person. Her family live a few miles north of our home and Lawrence worked at our farm and was always a happy and fun person. Our sympathy to the family
