Dear Andy and Medina:

Thank you for sharing.

Please extend my heartfelt condolences to her family.

She will indeed be remembered with great respect for all her academic
achievements and accomplishments.
To this, I wish to add what might be viewed as 'achievement' of a personal
>>From 1978 to 2002, I enjoyed a 'long-distance' but warm friendship with
Lois, a time when she gave me support and encouragement in my work (jokingly
calling me the "Focus Lady") when I was just starting my rather brief career
as a linguist.

I shall miss her.
How I wish I could have seen her when I was in Canberra for 9-ICAL in 2002!
(Remember, Andy - you gave me info on her when I inquired about her.
Unfortunately she and I just managed to have a brief chat on the phone.)

All the best and God bless!

Warmest regards, Pat
