My heart is broken. Aunt Lois and I spoke often especially after my dad passed away, her brother Melvin in Dec 07. Aunt Lois gave me so much history about the family and about her and my dad as children. She would laugh and say they were almost like twins. My dad was Feb 11, 1928 & Aunt Lois was Feb 20, 1929. I have so many letters from Aunt Lois and I will cherish them forever. She sent me so many old photos and I am blessed for these. I am truly going to miss our talks about my dad and my ancestry. My prayers are with my cousins and with Aunt Lois’ family. I truly know the pain everyone is feeling. Susie Kibbee Jones, Bakersfield, California
