Lori was my half sister. We were both adopted at birth and we only got a chance to speak once. I truly regret not knowing her. My sympathy to the family.

"It seems like yesterday, but it was long ago, we took the el camino to the carolina coast. Always thought I'd see you again, i was wrong. We were young and strong we were running against the wind"
To Lori's Family, please accept my heartfelt sympathy, and prayers, sincerely Alan Canipe

I just saw Lori's jeep the other day, and I said "I should stop by and see her sometime." ... Well, now I wished that I would have stopped THEN. I cant believe she is gone. Just like that. We had such great times partying,man,and I won't forget her. We sure did raise some hell 2gether.. she lived it up!! I think that she is probably at peace and not hurting anymore. She is starting her journey on the onther side,and we will see her again! God Bless. Sympathies to the Family.

Words cannot express how much it hurts to find out Lori is gone. She and I met in high school in 1977 and became fast friends. I quickly grew to think of her as the sister I never had. My heartfelt condolences to her family and other friends. She left us way too soon.

Dear Mildred, David & BJ
You are in my thoughts and prayers at this time of loss. I will never forget Lori and the friendship we once shared together. All of you were somewhat of a second family to myself. May the Lord bless and heal you in this time of loss.
