I met Lori in our time with the Marine Corps and I always have fond memories of her because of our love for video games. We both geeked out talking about Pokemon and games that we loved. Lori was always kind to everyone around her and I've always remembered our times in deployment together and will never forget them. She will be very missed.

Lori was a beautiful soul, I will remember her goofiness and her nerdiness. She will be sorely missed.

I've known Lori for a little over 10 years. She taught me all things Pokémon and animal crossing, and turned me into a geek. We were estranged from each other from 2016 until May of this year. We were so very different from each other, and we had our share of problems, but I love/loved her so much, she knew I had a special place in my heart for her no matter what had been said or done. I keep reading our messages over and over, I have a recent picture, but she was exhausted and just sent it to prove to me it was her lol so I don't think she'd want that up here. So here is a picture of us and Maggie from my baby shower 10 years ago. I will always be so thankful for her and her heart for what she did over the last two years that I was away from her. ❤️ I won't forget her.

I've known Lori for close to a decade now, and I have countless wonderful memories... playing Pokemon, all of the gaming sessions that had us screaming with laughter well into the night, adventures, deep conversations about the Really Big Stuff, you name it. She was a bridesmaid in my wedding, and I was honored to have her vibrant, beautiful self standing at my side. I will miss her and love her every day, forever.
