Lori enjoyed life, she was a trustful soul, her eyes always looked like she was up to mischief, and she had a wonderful smile and you could see the laughter in her eyes. Cookie always welcomed everyone in her home. Cookie took care of anyone who came around, always made sure they had food or a place to sleep no one was turned away.

All the kids loved her, her nieces and nephews enjoyed spending time with her, she would sit and listen to them and sometimes would give advice. Mainly is you be good now ok? Listen to your parents and behave and see you later ok, then Love you. She loved to make the children laugh and give big hugs if you needed one, the kids loved her very much.

Our sister “Cookie” aunt and friend, We Love You and you will be truly missed.

An Angels Hand

An Angel whispered in my ear,

Believe in me and have no fear

Come with me and take my hand

I will take you to another land

A place of Peace, a place of Light

Don’t be afraid just hold on tight.

Your Earth days are done, but don’t be sad

Remember all the times you had;

Loved ones will join, don’t despair

You have many in heaven waiting there

Your body dies, your soul is free

That’s why you get to fly with me.

By, John F. Connor
