    I worked with Lori ,and she always knew how to make you laugh! I learned a lot from her and she was always a listening year and would give you advice, even if you didnt like it. Lol I will miss her sarcasticness. She really was a special person. She always would talk about her family. She definitely loved her family and made that known.

    Lori was a special person, always there for family. Loved the way she laughed. She loved her children and grand children with all her heart. She did enjoy her work with the elderly and put her heart into it. She will be missed by all that knew her.
