We spoke once on the phone when I was trying to find Ray after she left England. It was before the internet! We had a good chat. My mum told me off about the cost of the phone call haha. Rest in Peace knowing you have good kids.

Dear Lollis family, I'd like to express my condolence and deep regrets for your loss for I loss my entire family to this enemy death and would like to share where I found hope and comfort at that time. I found this in what I read in Jehovah Gods word the Bible at John5:28,29 for there it tells us we'll see our love ones again in the resurrection when Jesus brings them back here on earth and Isaiah25:8 tells us that this enemy death will be swallowed up forever. With these scriptures along with others I'm able to cope with my loss and get through each day because now I know I'll see my love ones again and so can you. I wanted to share this with you now when hope and comfort is needed in hopes that this will help you also in some way for this is my purpose in sharing this with you at this time and please know that I do share your grief and hope you'll feel free to let me know if I accomplished my purpose. Hoping to hear from you. Sincerely, GM
