There are some people in this world that just make people laugh...
Lori was one of those people.
Lori was ushered into God's presence @ 12:00 today. She always joked that she would pull up a chair on a beach in Heaven & live out eternity there. Today she found out exactly what Heaven looked like, what it feels like to see Jesus face to face...touch Him...& worship Him forever.
The last few days have been so precious. Watching everyone tell her goodbye & thru it all...in true Lori style...she was still making us all laugh. Lori was the type that had fun no matter where she was & made life interesting. She traveled the world & went on multiple cruises & never let anything hold her back from taking off on an adventure.
Please pray for her children...Lacy, Jacob & Austin. They have a rough journey ahead of them, but I know they will honor their mother thru it all. I can't express how much your comments & prayers have meant to me this week for our family. I have felt them tremendously in my heart.
I would like to share this picture of Lori & I. This was taken at my grandparents house before she was sick. She is squeezing my cheeks & saying "squeeze me" with her giddy laugh that would make anyone crack up! What we all wouldn't give for one more Christmas with everyone.
This is Saturday at the hospital. All five of us older cousins haven't been together in a
really long time due to some circumstances...but we managed to come together one last time.
Cancer...it's a horrible disease & death. I know each of you have watched someone in your life slowly die from it. God did not choose to heal Lori here on earth like we wanted...instead He healed her for eternity...how can you argue with that? That is all of our goals & desire to be with Jesus one day. Lori is healed...the cancer did not win..Jesus won on the cross & defeated sin so we could have eternal life. I pray each of you know our Lord & Savior today.
Love & hugs to you all.
