  1. I am so sad to hear of Lori’s passing. She was a bright light in this world. I loved her energy and style. Whenever she came into the office she always put everyone if a great mood. I loved visiting with her and hearing all of her stories. She always spoke so highly of her wonderful family. I would always try to have something in the office that she could give her precious great-grandchildren. No matter how small, it didn’t matter, she just loved having something for those babies! She will be missed dearly.
    My deepest love goes out to all of her family and friends.

  2. My sweet Lori,

    The Lord will welcome you with open arms. You were His good and faithful servant.

    I will miss you more than you could know, but we will meet again in heaven and have lots more love and happy stories, hours and hours of them, just like before.

    Rest, my dearest, in sweet peace.

    “Gordon”
