    Dear Stephanie and the Orenstein family, Think back to the late 60's and Sea Park Holmes, Satellite Beach. Now that you might remember me, I wanted to let you know how sorry I was to hear about your mom. I saw her article in the FlaToday newspaper and childhood memories came flooding back. You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers. Take care and may you always be comforted by the memories of your mom! With Caring Thoughts, Shirley (Brown) Roberts

    Dear Arnie & Family, Lois was such a special person to me. She was always there when I needed her, with a smile on her face and something positive to say. She loved life and her family and many friends. She can't be replaced but will hold a special place in my heart forever.
