Eddie, Joe, and all the Crilley family I'm so sorry for your loss. Lois was a great lady. She raised a wonderful family and she was a great friend to me and my parents. I'll always remember her smile, great laugh, and those nice cold beers she shared with me:) I'm sure she's in great company getting ready to enjoy the Phillies with the best seats in the house. God bless you're in my thoughts and prayers,

I was deeply saddened to read of Lois's death. Although it has been many years since I last saw her, I will always remember great times with her and Joe, my late husband, Mike, and all the pipecoverers, back in the good old days in Brigantine.

God bless you all.
