So sorry for your loss. I remember living by you Keith, Laurie and the rest of the family when I was growing up on 9th street. Karen and Kathy used to babysit for us. I remember Laurie to be a very nice and friendly person. May she rest in peace.

Lori was a wonderful friend and colleague for over 20 years. We worked together in the “old’ Faribault Junior High School media center and later we were privileged to open the media center in the “new” Junior High. We worked hard, laughed often and enjoyed coming to work every day. We both believed in the value of the work we were doing. Lori cared deeply for students and always treated them with respect. She was a kind, competent, classy lady. She was so very supportive of my family and was like a member of the family as our children grew up. She loved and talked often about her own children and grandchildren and her precious Keith. She was a woman who lived her faith. May God bless your memory, Lori. Denny Thompson

I had many, many moments with Lori in a supervisory assignment in the media center when I taught at the junior high. She was the best person all around to work with. She was diligent and conscientious about her duties, helpful and friendly to students and faculty and very generous to everyone she met. I will never forget my days with her. I was privileged to not only work with her but to have some of her family members in my classes. She must have been thrilled with her family as it grew to include so many grandchildren and great-grandchildren. My prayers and sympathies go out to each one of you because you will really miss this elegant, kind lady. May God be your comfort in this hour.
