My dear cousin, I wish I could be there. To my beautiful family, I share my deepest condolences and want nothing more than to be there with you. I grew up a few houses down from Lorelei and she always made me feel welcomed and safe in her home ever since I was a child. She had a sense of humor like no other and you couldn't help but smile when you were around her. I love Lorelei and my heart goes out to everyone affected by her tragic passing.
