I have so many good memories of growing up with Lori. After we were grown, she helped care for my grandmother when she was very ill. Lori will always have a special place in my heart. Your family is in my prayers at this difficult time. Laurie Wuellner McCroskey

Lori was one of my best friends for over 45 years. Although we were many miles apart, we continued to stay in touch. We cried and laughed together. I will miss our marathon phone conversations. Lori appreciated the simple things in life. She loved the outdoors and enjoyed floating down James River, taking a drive in the country and walking Layla. I will miss her dearly. My condolences to the family.
