Dear Family,
I remember Lori as a friend from high school. She was one of us that started the somewhat short lived ski team, but we had a lot of fun. I will always have fond memories of her and her kind ways. My deepest condolences. Lisa Moore Penticoff (Jack and Lyddie Moore’s daughter).

Danielle, I am so sorry for your loss. I met your mother a few years ago at the fair in the pony barn. It was obvious how proud she was of you. Her face lit up when she mentioned your name. I hope your many beautiful memories give you strength during this difficult time. Your family will be in my prayers.
