Tears and smiles; remembering Lois


Sisters Lois Halliday and Ruth Henkin sit together for a photo in the summer of 2007. (Pamela O’Meara/Review)

Even when my Aunt Lois was suffering from dementia at age 88, she still had a big smile on her face and told me she loved me. That’s how I left her a couple of weeks ago.
Three days later my sister Nancy called to say Lois was sick and had fallen; she wasn’t expected to live. Nancy and my mother sat with her that afternoon and evening. The next morning she died peacefully.
