Kay & family, I was deeply saddened to hear about Lori. I remember the day you all looked at my grandparent Jenkins’ home like it was yesterday. I still can visualize Uncle Bill showing it to you and as I was looking out the window I saw that the family had a baby with them. I remember how excited I was telling my Mama they have a baby. From building tents in the house and playing Barbie, riding motorcycles and jumping on the trampoline, walking to Mr. Waylon’s store after school with all the children that were at either of the houses are memories that I will always cherish. Rest in peace Lori, until we meet again.
