I am so very sorry, Isaac and family. If mom was anything like you Isaac, she was as good as it gets. She made a difference in this life for the positive, by bringing you into it. Most Sincerely, Steve

Sorry to learn of Lori´s passing. She was an amazing women, and fought a courage´s battle against the Cancer. She knew this day would come, but she made the most of the time she had. She was thrilled to have seen her grandchildren and spend what short time she had with them. She supported me when my husband died of Pancreatic Cancer, which I greatly appreciated. I enjoyed working with her and cherished our friendship. God decided her work on earth was done.
