From: Cathy Love
Relation: She was my Aunt

Cousins and Family. I am so sorry for your loss. Auntie Lori was a vibrant, fun loving, active woman who always managed to keep in touch. I truly enjoyed her sense of humour, her frankness (her homemade jelly) and will miss her greatly. I was glad to have her with us when we lost our mom and appreciated her support. I have always said that I wanted to be just like her when her age and can only hope that its true. I will always think of her fondly and only wish I could have seen her again. My thoughts are with you in your grief. Cathy Love
ps. Put on a “Hanker” as I know she would enjoy it.
