    Lori had a wonderful voice and we had great times in Dixiliers and on choir trips! Many prayers for her family!

  3. So many memories from K through graduation, not to mention Girl Scouts. A beautiful voice and spirit. My condolences to all the family.

  4. I wanted to express my heartfelt condolences to Lori’s family. There’s such a sense of helplessness when someone we love dies. I’d like to share some scriptural thoughts that really helps me. Prayer is so valuable at this time but it’s not that prayer simply makes us feel better. 2 Cor.4:7 says that God can give us, “… power beyond what is normal “, to go from one day to the next. This does not mean that we no longer cry or that we forget, but it means we recover. The reason we recover is because of our hope. Jesus Christ talked about our hope in John 5:28, “… all those in the memorial tomb will hear his voice and come out “. Jesus was referring to the resurrection, this is our amazing hope.
    2 Cor.1:3 describes our Creator as, “.. the God of all comfort “. One way that God comforts us is by moving people who care about us to give us words of encouragement that we need to hear. May the God of comfort (Ps.83:18) be your comfort now during this time of sorrow.

  5. Blessed is the way wherein you walk today, for there is prepared for you a place of rest.
