Lois Ward's Tribute Wall

Tributes (1):

  1. I had only one opportunity to visit with Lois before she died. She was a little restless when I arrived, but started settling down nicely as I talked to her. She said she liked Irish music so I sang ‘When Irish Eyes Are Smiling and Amazing Grace. She indicated she liked county also. We prayed together The Lord’s Prayer, which she recited about half of it. She was very willing to receive a blessing from me. By the time I was ready to leave, she had calmed down a lot and indicated she wanted to rest.

    My prayers and sympathies out to all family and loved ones.
