I just now saw the obituary of Lori. I was shocked to see that Lori left here at such a young age. I saw this young woman grow up along with her sister Susie and brother Chris. She was always beautiful and hard working. Susie and Chris, my prayers and deepest sympathy to you both and all your family. I will always remember all you kids and watching ya'll play and grow up. Love and prayers, Linda (Rector) Berry
