Lori was my best friend in Hawaii for the two years we knew each other. She was so lovable, smart, had a wicked sense of humor and was just a wonderful person.

Being with her again at the first San Antonio reunion was a joy, a joy to see the lovely woman she grew into from the lovely girl. She will be so missed I'm sue by all who knew her. My heart goes out to Stan and the family.

Lori was a very special person who was loved and admired by all who knew her! She was a beautiful young girl and grew into a beautiful woman! I was thrilled when she attended a WKR reunion as I hoped to get to know her better as an adult! My heartfelt sympathies go out to her family! Rest in peace dearest Lori!

Sonny Walker

My sympathies to all of Lories family. When I remember Lorie, I remember often giving her a ride to school along with my sister Diane. They were great friends and always funny and chatty even that early in the morning. May she Rest In Peace.

Lori was one of my best friends while living in Hawaii. She was fun and I loved being with her. The last time I saw her was in '61 when she and her family came through Savannah and stopped to see my family. From there, Lori and I took a bus to Myrtle Beach to spend a week with Anne Altman, who also had lived on Hickam. We had the best time , one that I shall never forget. Lori had a wonderful personality and was a caring person … family first. She and Stan are both at peace now. Their family is in my thoughts and prayers. Although we just talked on the phone or emailed back and forth, I shall miss her a lot. She was a very special person.

Lori and I lived next door to each other at Hickam AFB. Our fathers were stationed in DC at the same time, as well. We became friends for life. After our reunion in Oregon last year, I called her and we talked for over an hour. I don't remember much of our conversation, but I do remember her telling me that she had forgiven me for introducing her to her first husband because without that marriage, she wouldn't have her daughter that she loves so much. Without my introducing him to her, she wouldn't have her. I'd really like to talk to the family. If someone could contact them, I'd love for you to give them my email address. I don't know how to get in touch with them.
