    I’m so sorry for the loss of Lois. May God be with you in this difficult time. She was a dear friend for about 40 years. She will be terribly missed.

    I’m so very sorry about Lois. She was an exceptional lady. A great friend for 35+ years. May you be comforted by the fact that she is in a better place and in no pain.

    Lois was a thoughtful, sweet lady. We worked together at Seagate for many of my 33 years there and she was one of the best people to be around. We also shared our love for Neil Diamond music. I’ve thought of her many times since she retired and was sad to hear of her passing. My sympathies to the family.
