Jennifer, to learn about Lois was such a shock! Lois and I worked together several years ago and stayed in touch. When I had a need for some additional help in HR recently, she was available and interested and came back to work with us at Organogenesis. We all loved her and were hoping so much that she would be able to get better and come back. We will miss her terribly! We loved to hear the stories of her grandchildren -- I know she loved them dearly and they gave her such joy! I will come by on Monday.
