Beautiful video! Great memories...I will miss her smiling face. She was one of a kind. Although I only saw her 1-2 times a year, we had fun. At our annual Swami party, she and I were typically two of the last to go to bed and the first to get up in the morning! Great times hanging out with her in our sunroom.

We are so saddened to hear of Lori's passing. She was a dynamite woman and always had a welcome spark of snark in her humor! We'll remember her with smiles and memories of Evan and Rachel born just a few days apart. We're thinking of you during this time.
Steve, Sherry and Evan
