Lorrie was a driving force in my weight loss journey. After the birth of my daughter in the fall of 2011, I would read her entries for comfort and insight. I was able to loose 200lbs with the tips and insights Lorrie posted. Out of the blue today I thought about her & googled her blog and found out about her passing. I can't say enough about the comfort she brought me during my journey. She will me missed!

I'm yet another person who felt like she knew Lorrie because of the honest, brave way she shared her life through her blogging. I aspire to be more like her--more willing to put myself out there and chase my dreams. Thanks for the lessons in living, Lorrie. May you rest in peace.

I am a stranger who is shocked and deeply saddened. I hope her family knows what an impact she made through her honest writing. She is a beautiful, tenacious lady who certainly made an impact in her short life.

Lorrie and I never met, but I followed her blog that inspired me to start mine a few years ago. Her honest writing, style, and zest for life was an inspiration. I wrote a post about her here. http://skinnyemmie.com/2013/03/mortality/
I just want her family to know she touched so many people and had no idea.

Such a beautiful, talented and truly good person. Lorrie was so warm and full of life. Her laugh was most certainly contagious. Such a massive loss, not only for her loving husband and wonderful family, but also for her friends and everyone her beautiful spirit touched.
