Donna, Carol, &  Cheryl, I'm was so sorry to hear about your MOTHER passing away, but I have so many wonderful memories of growing up in Zion when we were just little kids and then growing up, being in each others weddings, all of us going to Boiling Springs school from 1st grade to 12 grade, it was like we were one family, everyone in Mt. Zion, it was such a close knit neighborhood...I  just have so many good feelings about living there. I remember in  the summer your mother drove us down to the iron bridge to go swimming, in my dad's old model A floor shift car, and she bucked it the whole way down, we were all laughing so hard.  I will miss your mother, she was so special.   I love you a lot, including your husbands, Randy and Eddy.                                    Vicki Micholas

So sorry to hear of Lois's passing.  She was a fine lady. I worked with her at Forest Park Nursing Home.  I remember stopping in to visit with Lois and Clair.  Clair would say, "Look at the dog eating peanuts."  But there is one thing that I will always remember about Lois.  The day she had her ears pierced by a co-worker (an LPN).  I never forgot that.  I remember cringing and thinking that has to hurt.  But the ice for numbing the ears, the soap cake to which the needle landed in after the puncture.  What a memory of a very fine lady to work with.  After I left work, I lost track, but always remembered working with her and if I saw her out while shopping,  we remembered each other.  She always talked about her girls also.  Cherish the memories, they last forever.

Love and miss you Grandma.  You will be forever in my heart.
