Although a life threatening condition confronted Lori, you wouldâ€™ve never known it. Full of sprit, overflowing with happiness and love, nothing could stop her will to survive. When most would feel saddened and give up, Lori continued to live a full life and she never gave up. Even when the doctor told her that the cancer would eventually take over and win, her immediate response was, â€œBullshit!â€
With her cocky sprit she brought so much to so many, and touched so many lives in such a special way. Her memory will forever live within us. To know Lori was to love Loriâ€¦.
That my friends, is a real hero.
