Dear Deb, Patty, and MIke. I just read Aunt Lois's obituary and I am so very sorry that she has passed away. I could not have asked for a sweeter person as an aunt. Always smiling and fun when I was around her. I feel honored that I was their flower girl when they got married and I love that picture of the wedding. She was such a positive person. She was so very good to everyone and I will think of her forever with loving memories. How lucky you were to have her for a Mom.. . Love, Alanna

Lois was like a mother to many of us growing up and she treated us like one of her own. She made each of us feel special and truly cared about each and every one of us. She helped keep us on the right path and she wasn't afraid to let us know when we need a little correction. Her home was always open to us and we were always welcome. Our thoughts and prayers are with the Friskney family and know that we loved your mom like our own.
