Missing you Lorrie---
It's been a year--
So hard to believe--
Gary just sent me-- just now this morning- a picture of your Tennessee room at the house---he said it was your favorite place at home---
I've thought about you a hundred times-
How we would run and play --
Just being kids---
I wish we could roll back time--
Love you ---❤

Rest in peace little sister. It hurt so much when the angels came to take you home. I know you are in a better place now with all the others who have gone before. Love you.

Lorrie was an inspiration to us all. Gary was constantly by her side and did everything possible to ease her pain. There is comfort in knowing that she is at peace. Our thoughts and prayers are with the family.
