    Lori and I have known each other since we were 16 yrs. old. Her passing leaves a hole in my heart; but my memories of Lori are warm & wonderful. The following poem describes our friendship nicely:
    “Friendship is a tapestry woven through the years,
    with threads of joy and laughter, happiness and tears;
    It’s a work of art so precious, it’s shared by precious few,
    Yet easily created by a loving friend like you.”
