I miss this wonderful cousin of mine, andI will never understand why some live and others pass on. I've learned a lot from Cousin Lori and I will never forget her kindness in sight of my family rejecting me, but I am stronger now that I hear Lori's words blaring in my head! She knew, I knew and she helped me adns aved my life against the dreded BRCA gene. I am alive because of her. Long live her soul and spirit.

Lori had angel, like my mother would have said. She was brilliant, energetic, driven, to the outmost. Had a sense of humor. We miss her.

I am very sad to hear that Dr Altshuler died. She was a wonderful teacher, and one of the few advocates for bipolar depressed people going on antidepressants, despite the reigning ideology.

Not only will I miss her presence, but also will do my best to carry on her teachings.

My deepest condolences to the family. Your loved one lives on in her work with those afflicted with mood disorders. Hoping you find comfort in fond memories and the "visiting room" of your dreams.

You were a leader and the most incredible friend. My heart goes out to you all. All my love, Tina Brooks - Peretz .

A bench? Her name should be written everywhere on the UCLA campus. Lori was something very special and special people are taken from us too fast. She was passionate, she was compassionate and she was good! She cared about people, patients, family, her sons and more. She was intelligent, funny, good looking and sharp as a tack. Sorely missed. Sorely still needed by me and the world. Love you Lori A. I'm glad you are my cousin and my friend. I heard you in a dream last week. You said in the clearest voice "Where am I and what's going on?" Sleep my flower, my heart, my strength, you will be remembered always!
