I'm so sorry to hear that Lori passed away. I just found out yesterday. She worked at my tavern, Centerfield. I enjoyed her company, I don't go there much but I did meet her once. Prayers and love to the family.

I met Lori at the Olympica Restaurant and we just hit it off. We talked about crafts, clothes, jewelry and of course her children. She helped make sure my Dads 80th bday dinner went smooth. Lori you amazed me with all your determination and hard work to always find the bright side of your dialysis and goals you set and achieved. You will be missed. Thanks for your friendship ❤
