I’m so sorry to hear of your loss. I went to school with Lori. She always was such a sweet girl with a lovely smile. I’m sure that will be what so many will remember her by, her smile.

So very sorry for your loss! As a member of Windsor Hills over many years I recall sharing time with her during a few Aftercare meetings. She was such a seeet, gentle soul with a quick smile. She will be missed!
