    I grew up with the Albert family and I remember watching tv game shows with Lois always getting the answers correct and thinking Wow! She should go on these shows and be rich.Just something funny I thought to share in this time of grief.

    I have trained with Lois in the judging program CFF. She was a friend before that and will be missed. We have all in CFF lost a great friend. The cats will miss her also.
    Condolences to her family. Rest in Peace, Lois. You are now with Phil and all the kitties.

    My heart goes out to you with this great loss. I’m not sure it gets much more lonely than loosing your mother. At least there’s some comfort in knowing that she is flying free now. Hugs!
    Love ya, Gayle
