Tom and family: My heart is broken. I am so very sorry for your loss. Though I have not seen Lorrie for a few years, we did keep in contact every Christmas and exchanged family news, I will miss this, but will always remember her smile and friendliness. and family weddings and other events we were able to share with her. Always in my heart.

Tom and family: my heart goes out to all of you on the passing of your dear Lorrie. She was a truly beautiful person, inside and out. While it has been a long time since we've seen each other, I've not forgotten her sweet voice and beautiful smile. May she rest in peace, and may your memories of Lorrie give you comfort.

Tom and family please accept my deepest and most sincere sympathy at this time. You and Lorrie were such dear neighbors on Running Water even though it was such a short period of time. Lorrie was always so bubbly and full of joy and encouragement. I am sorry that I didn't keep in touch more after I moved to Austin. Lorrie could always make things seem better when she came by or you encountered her about town. I feel that my life was definitely better and richer just by knowing her and having had her as a part of my life. You are all in my prayers and may God strengthen and comfort you in the days ahead. Tom if you want to talk after you return from California give me a call. (512) 241-1947 Emily McCormick
