As one of his favorite songwriters sang "some of its magic and some its tragic, but I had a good life anyway" honey, you will always be with me, I love you so. Bess

LARDNER -- LOIS M. Perhaps you brought or served food. Perhaps you sent a lovely card or sat quietly in a chair. Perhaps you sent a floral piece, if so, we saw it there. Perhaps you spoke the kindest words as any friends could say; perhaps you were not there at all, just thought or prayed for us that day. Whatever the part the Lord had you play to console our hearts, we thank you so much, and may He bless each one of you. The family of Lois M. Lardner. French Mortuary 10500 Lomas Blvd. NE. 275-3500
