Lori was one of those rare people who carried her peace wherever she went. Her quiet sweet spirit was a great blessing to many of us who had to work at a place with so much drama. In the 20 years I had known her never once did I see her not at peace. It was a honor to have known and worked with her.

It is with deep sorrow to learn of Lori's passing. I worked with Lori at the USPS. She was a very good friend and I am sad that since I retired 2 1/2 yrs ago we kinda lost touch except for Facebook. I kept in touch with her through that. My prayers go out to her family and loved ones. I am very sorry for your loss. May GOD BLESS all of you in your time of need. She will be missed. RIP Lori.

I will always love you Lori and I pray we will see each other again in a better place. Every time I was with you your smile and laugh would light up my heart. You always seemed to do that no matter what was going on in your life. Although we were separated by miles I will miss you just knowing you aren't there. God bless all of our family.
