Lorianne was kind, talented and stylish, spreading her positive energy wherever she went. Her beautiful smile was freely given and infectious. Loving mother, kind friend, beautiful soul.

My Sweet Sister Lori, she and I were the 'Little Ones' as we are youngest of 4 girls..she being the baby.
Lori rescued me when I needed it most. She would ask to put her cold feet on my legs to warm them up, when we were really little and shared a bed.
I miss her everyday. I just love her so much, it's not quite real.

Lori was so beautiful, graceful, talented and kind. She made me workout outfits in the 80’s when I was pregnant and you couldn’t find any. She inspired me to be healthy & workout. She was always such a supportive friend. The world has lost a wonderful soul. My sincere condolences to her family.
