We were close friends until gradutation and I regret that we did not keep in touch very well after that. We spoke on the phone several times. I have alot of wonderful memories that I will cherish forever and I'm truely sorry for your loss. God Bless!

Harlen & Sandy
Our hearts go out to you and Lori's family. I remember Lori when we got together many times when we all lived in Coon Rapids. Lori had good times with our Steve & Kathy. Carol & Bill Larson sent an E-mail tonight telling us that they were at the Wake here in Forest Lake on Saturday. We would have been there with you also had we known before tonight. May God be with you and all of her loved ones through these very sad times and may we all see her again in...

I worked with Lori during our Home Care days. She was so giving of herself; her heart went out to those she saw and those she talked to on the phone. She was interested in the details of others' live. Sometimes she forgot about her own needs while immersing herself in helping others. I had no idea that she was ill and am very sorry for all who loved her.

My heart goes out to the "Damon" family. I have known them since Jr. High and went to school with both and have been a friend of Julie's for decades. I hope Lori is finally at peace.
God Bless

Harlen and Sandie

We were saddened to learn of Lori's passing. It is never easy to lose a loved one and especially difficult if it is a child. Yes they grow up and become adults, but they are always our children. Joan and I pray that the ever loving Lord will welcome her into the Kingdom and that He will give you the strength to endure these difficult days.

Sandie,Harlen---We are so sad for you and your whole family.We wish we could be with you at this time to share in your grief but even tho we're so far away,our hearts and thoughts are there,our prayers are there,our hugs are there.

I have known Lori since high school (Tenth Grade) and early into her young developing family. We had good laughs and seen some tears. I will remember her as a truly kind person, with a good hart and a soft word for those whom may of needed one. To her other friends and family, I am sorry for your loss, long term illnesses can and will test your strengths and courage.

For Par Jr and Vanessa, I am truly sorry for you. For these times and this person cannot and will not be...

I will miss her laugh and working with her. She was a fun person to be around and a good friend to many people. My thoughts are with you vanessa and family.
