Your family is in my prayers.
It has been many year since Lori and I spoke at the 1991 class reunion yet I remember her as happy, smiling, and full of life. My thoughts and prayers are with you in this difficult time, and pray God will keep and bless you.
My thoughts and prayers go out to you during your loss. Lori, Melanie, Betsy and I were always doing something together in High School. I didn’t keep in touch after school but I think of her often. I drive by her house where she grew up almost every day and she always crosses my mind.
A great lost of a friend and classmate of 1981 Rest in peace my FRIEND!!!!
I went to school at Creswell with Lori. We’re thinking of you and yours.
I am very sorry to hear of Lori’s death. She was a joy to teach in elementary school at Creswell… fun-loving and friendly. This is yet another tragedy for the family. You are in my prayers.
Many years have passed since I have had contact with Lori, but the memories of our years as classmates at Creswell High have always been been close at hand. I will always have fond memories of Lori. My deepest sympathy to all family and friends. May God comfort you during this difficult time.
Sorry to hear about Lori. Even though I have loss touch with some of fellow class mates from Class of 81. I remember her as a pleasant and funny person. She always gave everyone a good laugh. My deepest sympathy to her family.
Sammy and Tiffany, I am so sorry to hear about Lori. There are just no words to express my sympathy, but I will tell you I know how it is to lose a spouse AND a mother and my heart goes out to you and your family. She was a sweet-spirited lady, and I hope you will be consoled to know that she is in a better place. Keep the faith and hold the good memories close in your hearts. May it help you to know that you are in our prayers.
I have you in my prayers. It is not easy to lose a family member. Stay strong and know that he is GOD. An angel has entered into heaven to make a way for the rest of us. Know that she was a blessing to everyone that she came in contact with. Look to the hills from which cometh your help.
