My deepest sympathy to Lori's family. I am so sad by this news. Lori and I went way back to the elementary days. We were classmates, graduating together, and best friends. Chorus was one of our favorite classes that we shared together. Lori and I often stayed at each others houses and always hung out together until we all started getting married and going our own directions. Lori always has and always will hold a very dear place in my heart. Love you Lori.

My deepest sympathy to Laura and family. I have lots of memories of Lori growing up. We rode the same bus for a while.
I remember her first wedding VERY WELL. Heather, our oldest daughter was 2 or so. We took 'quiet' things along to keep her occupied. We did well, until she dropped something at the MOST QUIET PART OF THE CEREMONY, and said ut oh, extremely loudly!!! I wanted to crawl under the pew!!
I remember a trip to Adventureland, with a 4-H group, another friend had invited me.
