To my loving wife Lori,
Though our time together on earth was short I cannot think of anyone else I would have wanted to share it with. You touched my heart the moment I met you and I will forever love you. Rest In Peace my beautiful angel. I will see you in heaven and when I do I will hold you and never let you go.

I was Lori's coworker for almost 5 years. Lori was one of the main people responsible for showing me the ropes when I first started at TRC, and I always looked forward to working with her. I used to joke in the office that I had to run to the restroom before getting on a call with her because our conversations would last so long – both due to her all-encompassing knowledge of programs, as well as our shared obsession with things like The Walking Dead and our dogs, and sharing stories about her family.
In my eyes, she was the remote-work pioneer. She took advantage of phone meetings as one of the main ways we could get to know each other, and always made a point to bring something personal into our conversations. While our roles did not remain as closely tied as they were when I first joined TRC, it was always great to catch up when we did connect.
One takeaway I will have from knowing Lori is to always spend a few extra minutes chatting with people, because a good life is not one where work is strictly business. She was a program process encyclopedia, accounting guru, one of my go-to’s for brainstorming, and a kind, caring, and genuine person. I will miss having her on my team.
My deepest condolences to her friends and family.
