  5. She taught me a lot in the years I worked for her she is part of the reason I am who I am today. She is one of the strongest women I ever knew and how she loved her family. I will miss her greatly. Prayers and hugs to you all

  6. I certainly have been thinking of the Morehead these past few days. Condolences to each of you as you adjust to life without “Granny” in your physical presence. We all know that she will always be with each of you with her spiritual presence. Praise the Lord for Lois Morehead!

  7. Terra and family,

    Words are never adequate to express the heartfelt sorrow you are all experiencing from the passing of “Granny” Morehead. I never had the distinct pleasure of meeting Lois, but I worked with Her daughter, Terra. From the condolences previously sent, it is clear that Terra is a “chip off the ole block.” Terra- your mother entered the gates of Heaven with a smile on her face because she has left behind a legacy of kindness, a love for all, and a legacy of strength. May you always cherish the wonderful memories of an extraordinary woman. And remember to laugh again and again when you remember the times she laughed with you. I’m so sorry. Hugs to you all and praying God gives you strength at this time and in all ways.
