My sister Linda and I (Jan) loved Lois as soon as our cousin Al brought her to meet our parents years ago. Our way of reminding Al it was time for him to ask that lovely lady to be his bride was to cut pictures of engagement rings out of the Sunday paper and put them in his coat pocket when he visited! Years later after my sister and I were married, we told Lois what we had done and we all had a good laugh over it. Al and Lois were truly loved by my parents (Louise and Harold Schommer) and by all my siblings. Her wonderful smile will be missed. Our symapthy goes out to Alan, Jeff, Doug, Kara and the grandchildren. Sorry we are so far away in Florida and will not be able to attend. You will be in our thoughts.
