She was one of my favorite people! When Mike and I got married, we came back to Lori and Tenny's house and she asked why we were there and not at a motel, told her we spent all our money on the wedding, so she gave us money for the motel, the next morning we came back again and she again asked why we were back so early then handed us more money and said go back to the motel, hahaha. She was always so welcoming to everyone, loved her dearly! Sure will miss her. At least I did get to go on a cruise with her! Fond memories!
