Dear Johnny and extended family. Aunt Lois passing feels like the end of an era, with her being the last one of the siblings to pass on. I am so pleased and so impressed that she stayed so mentally sharp and witty. We have stopped in for a visit with her several times since my dad passed away (almost four years ago now!), including one time when she was in the hospital in Payson. I have such fond memories of her (and Donny, Jerry and Rae Ann), staying for days with cousin Johnny back when Johnny and I were both young. I don't know if I'll be able to make it from California to the services on Saturday, but I am certainly looking into it. Love to you all, Randy (John Randal) Sheffield.
