Kathy & Jay, Jason & Monica, We have been out of town and were so saddened to return and learn of your loss. Lois was a wonderful lady and I can remember of many many good times we had with her and your family. I wish you comfort and knowledge that you will see her again. Kathy, I guess it means we are getting older when we are the only grandparents to refer to. I think the world of all you guys and wish you the very best. Love Bob

Kathy, Connie, and Doug... we're so sorry to learn of your mother's passing. I have many fond memories of spending some of the holidays at your home with a lot of cousins and a lot of food/fun. I know you will all miss her, but take heart in knowing that she is in a better place now with your father, brother and all of our other family members. She was the last of the Cawley ancestors, and she was a grand lady!
