  1. My Deepest Sympathy goes out to the family of Lois Patton at this time. I met Lois and David while working at Diverse Options. Torie was a delight to work with. She always needed a hug, but hugs were not allowed. If Jan were not at the front desk, usually I was. Every single day she brought stuff up for “AL”. Lois will now move on to the next chapter in her life in Heaven. Hopefully there will be a golf course in Heaven.
    Sincerely and with a heavy heart,
    Betty Nitz of Green Lake, Wisconsin

    Lois will be missed very much. To me, she was very caring, always had a smile on her face and she had a deep love of family and love of life. My deepest sympathy to the Patton family for the loss of a very special lady.
