I am saddened by the loss of Lorelei. We were friends in school (Ahoskie High. I graduated in 1964). Lorelie was very sweet and kind. She is in heaven now. With no more pain,sorrow or tears. To the family, I pray that God will give you strength in your time of sadness. Lorelie will always live in our hearts.

To Judy’s family:

I am shocked and saddened to hear of Judy’s passing. She and I were friends years ago through work, and she was always smiling, always brightening a room when she walked in. I hadn’t seen her in several years, having moved out of the area, but she’s the kind of person that you always remember. I still remember her laugh.

Thoughts and prayers go out to her family. Judy was a special lady.
