To th Bowlen Family,
So very sorry to hear about the passing of Lori. It is hard losing a loved one but at such a young age, makes it harder to grasp. Your family is in my thoughts and prayers through these rough days ahead. It's times like these when words are hard to find. May you hold all the good memories that you all shared with Lori, for no on can take those away. May she rest in peace and enjoy being with her mom and dad and know she is in a far better place than we. May God bless and take care of you, and just look to the skies for the brightest star and there you will find Lori, watching down an you all. May you rest in peace, Lori...

My sympathies to the family of Lori Bowlen. She was a classmate of mine in high school. I remember her being kind, never a bad word for anyone and usually a smile on her face.
