Lori, you have always inspired me with your strength and love of family and friends. You always allowed for everyone to be themselves and accepted them as they were. You have touched my life in ways that I'm sure you were unaware of. Your life had purpose and meaning. I'm happy that you will be able to see Greg and those you have loved that passed before you. You have those here (family and friends) that will miss and love you til we all meet again. Much love to you and your family.

Mr. Jim, The girls and I are so sorry to hear about Ms. Lori. She was such a sweet lady. We'll never forget when she came to pick up treats from us and gave us a Christmas card with a gift card in it! It was so kind and unexpected. You and your family are in our thoughts and prayers.
