Lori, Paul and all of the family and friends, I sure did love that woman. You always knew where you stood with her and she was a beautiful person that always lit you up whenever you would spend some time with her. I will miss her and remember the many times I talked with her. My thoughts are with all of you during this sad time. Truly a beautiful girl we will never forget.
