To the family of Lorie... She was in my life for many years upon coming to Albert Lea. We were friends and I taught some of the kids in gymnastics. One day Lorie and I went rummaging for 7 hours without calling in. My husband thought i was lost - No, I was with Lorie having so much fun. She was a major survivor and loved her kids. Sending hugs to all of you ... I know Lorie taught you well - Use those wonderful skills and words of encouragement!
