Lois was an integral and vibrant part of the New England filk community. She was also a fun person to be around. When I think of her, that's the first thing that comes to mind. I can still picture her, always cheerful and smiling, having a good time and exuding fun. I wish I'd had more time around her, but alas, geography sometimes gets in the way of that kind of thing.
Now I won't get that chance. Damn.
