    I am proud to say I knew Lori since 1988. She was so smart, so sweet and so funny. We shared lot of laughs. Happily, we stayed in touch all these years. I love Lori so much! And I miss knowing she was always there for me. I hope her memory will be a blessing to all.

    I like Kathy Jones knew Lori since 1988 when she worked for our company. Unfortunately I didn’t really get to know her until several years after when we communicated regularly through Messenger especially when you both were heading to Nice…

    I was shocked to hear the news especially about this insidious decease that hits close to home

    May she Rest In Peace and Mike our best thoughts to you

    Lori didn’t know me but I’m her half sister. My name is Sharon and Mary Eliff was my mom. I tried to find you to try to connect with you but found you too late. I’m so sorry to hear this news. My heart breaks for your beautiful daughters and their families. Wish we could have gotten to know each other.
