My Dear Sweet Lori,
I'm still trying to process my thoughts to put on paper what I want to say to you. I'm having a hard time believing that you will no longer be with us in the physical world. I have faith and believe that there is an after life and that you are at peace. You fought a good fight. Your body was tired and couldn't take anymore. You never complained and kept pushing through whatever was thrown at you. I am amazed at what an incredibly strong woman you were. I know in my heart that Kyle and Cole will get their strength from you. You were an amazing sister, daughter, wife, mother and aunt to us all. You always put everyone before yourself, even battling this disgusting disease, you reached out to all of us when we had our own struggles, to make sure that we were all ok. I promise you, that we will make sure Chris and the boys will be taken care of. I don't know that I will ever be able to get over losing you as my heart is broken. Although you are no longer here, I know you will somehow find a way to give us all the strength to find comfort in knowing you are resting in peace. There will not be a day that goes by that I don't think of you and wish you were still with us. I feel robbed because of this pandemic that we were not able to hug you more or be close to you, but know that I am hugging you tight right now and I'm not letting go. My heart will forever be broken from losing you.
Until we meet again, rest easy my beautiful sister.
Love you more,
Love you always,

To my beloved Wife,
Lori was the strongest most determined woman I ever met. No matter what obstacles came into our path Lori always remained levelheaded and ready to tackle any issues. Lori fought harder than anyone I’ve ever known. When Lori first got sick and we got the news one of the things that I remember most about my incredible wife was the fact that she never questioned why me? She never felt sorry for herself.
Even when she was battling her cancer she was concerned about everyone else around her. She was selfless in everything that she did. When her niece Taylor was sick and her mom was sick Lori wasn’t thinking about herself and her cancer, her focus was on her family. When people asked her if there was anything they could do for her her only response was say a prayer for her. In her last hours instead of focusing on herself she was telling Kyle to make sure he got the Covid vaccine and how he could get it. The incredible way she cared for others will always be with us.
I believe or should I say I have to believe there must be some very special reason God has chosen Lori. Maybe he knew her body was tired of fighting and this was the only way he knew he could help her do what she love the most; taking care of her loved ones and watching over everyone. Knowing what I know now, given the choice I’d choose it all over again. While the time we had was short, we lived and loved a lifetime. our lives will forever be blessed. Lori will always and forever be our guardian angel and now she has her wings. Sleep well my angel. I love you. You will forever be in my heart and all that I do. Love Always Chris

There are no words to describe the loss of you my sweet warrior friend. So thankful for all the memories , conversations and laughter we shared together that I will hold close to heart. You were taken from this earth far too soon and my only consolation is that you are no longer in pain and that Heaven has received a beautiful Angel. May you fly high and rest peacefully Lori...I love you and will miss you.🦋💔💕

Lori, you will be missed and always in my heart.
I will never forget our conversations as they always included picking on Chris just for the fun of it.
Rest easy my friend.
