Loris was such a kind gentle soul. I had the pleasure of knowing her for a short time. Two or so years . I was her hairdresser and she was a joy to be around. Many weeks when she came in and wasn’t feeling well she would tell me she almost didn’t come. She didn’t want to let me down. Selfless , and kind lovely lady. God’s blessing to receive her in his arms. You will be missed my friend!

I have known Loris for over 30 years and she was one of my best friends and I loved her very much. We have shared a lot of time together in having lunch for many years before Loris got where she could not go out. We have had many talks on the phone and she would always listen to my problems and give me advice. She was also there for me when I lost loved ones and a comfort for me. We also shared books to read when I got one I would read it and then take it to her for her to read. I will miss her so much and I will always be thankful that I could share my life with her and have her share hers with me. Loris was a very caring person and she will be missed very much. Your very good friend Shirley Briles
