Libby, Billy and Family,
Please accept my deepest sympathy at the death of Mrs. Lois. She was an incredible lady and such a role model for so many of us growing up. I did not know about her death until today; otherwise, I would have been at the visitation or the funeral. Love to all of you. Alyce

My dear cousin Libby and family,
I have such fond memories of that little house on Mud Creek Rd. Summers spent going to Bible School at St. Phillips, "busting" watermelons in the patch and riding bikes (sometimes double and triple) down the dirt driveway going to Mammy's. My Aunt Lois could always be depended on for her potato salad, pimento cheese, and pound cake. She was our matriarch, saint, and a mother to us all. We're going to miss her.
Love, Angela
