Sending my love to Lori's family. Lori was a special person and friend. We may not have talked often throughout our adult years, but I always knew she was there if I needed her. We all need special people in our lives and Lori was one of those people for me.

Lori was a child when Wayne came to be our pastor in Garden City. We watched Lisa and Lori grow up. They were in youth group with our kids. We worked together as long as their family were at First Baptist Church. It's been years since I saw Lori but I have heard that she was a gifted teacher. My family and I send our sincere sympathy to her family. God bless you all.
