Lori was always so kind to me, she always talked to me when I saw her. Her sence of humor was grand.I will miss her always. Her mom and her were my first friend when I moved here.I was very lonely and they both always cheered me up.My husband did an interview with them both and I got to go, It was so fun and full of laughter. God Bless You Lori. Another country Angel In Heven!

Her cheery "hello" and a nice smile always made my trip to the IGA very nice. Such a small thing, often overlooked, can mean so much to so many.
