    Lorie, She loved the sun, the breeze, the beach and most of all, a chair in the water by the shore. Lorie is sailing to calmer water. She has gone home. No burdens or worries. Just that little girl. You will always be greatly missed. Love always and forever. Robert

    We had the joy of getting to know Miss Lorie as we worked for her last season, mowing her yard. She was so kind and caring and very appreciative of our work. She always thanked our sons, telling them what a great job they had done. She was such a warm and welcoming lady. We will miss her.
