      To the Lee Family, I am sorry for the loss of your loved one. Please know that you and yours are in my thoughts and prayers in the days to come. Much love.

  5. To the Lee family, Barney was the first cousin of my Mom, Elaine Todd Williams, who we lost June 9, 2016. I can remember Barney and Lois visiting my parents home in Mart when I was young. May God give you strength and comfort now and in the days to come. Scottish poet Thomas Campbell wrote in Hallowed Ground “To live in hearts we leave behind is not to die.” Lois will be with you always in your hearts and precious memoires.

    In the I am sorry for your loss. Seeing Lois’s death notice brought back many memories. After
    Bills death I stayed in Henrietta. Not much contact with Holmans. In March of this year I moved into The Village at Providence Park.
    Today I have been remembering fun times spent with Barney, Lois and you Lee Boys.
    I will be praying for each of you in the days ahead.

  8. I have fond memories of Aunt Lois. I know you will miss her so much. I will miss her, too. I always enjoyed being with her. She never seemed to change and was always amazingly beautiful.
    Now she is in heaven with Mother and Aunt Gladys and they can all be together again. I miss them all.
