    I remember Lois when I was growing up in Bozeman. She and my mom (Jane) worked together at the hospital. When I was in high school and college, I got to work with her too. Lois was such a lovely, kind lady with a fun sense of humor.

    I remember taking a microbiology class from Gordon one summer and Lois told me not tell him who I was so he had to guess. He never did. I finally told him towards the end of the quarter. He told me he thought I was someone else.

    Both your parents were wonderful people. I am so sorry for your loss. My thoughts are with you as you journey through grief.
