I hardly know what to say...Lori was so so so special to both Joel and myself. I watched her grow up to become the beautiful lady that she was. We had so many good times together from her very sweet age of about six years until she married and left good old Shumate. I felt like I was her other mother or at least a big sister. The Cooper family was always one of our favorites. Rest now sweet Lori until we meet again. Love and kisses, Brenda and Joel

I was so saddened to hear that Lori had passed away. She had a smile that could light up any room. She will certainly be missed by many. Thinking of the family and wishing you peace and comfort during this very difficult time.
