Dear Lynda, Lori, Michelle, and Melody,
I was surprised when reading the obituary I discovered that Lori Smith was your Mother/Grandmother. I knew her from Christopher's Cleaning but never knew that you all were related. Please accept my sympathy at your loss. May God grant her rest and grant you peace in this time of sorrow.
With love,

I'm so sorry to see of Lori's passing. I grew up on Second St. in Freeport next to the playground and I remember when her and her family moved in three houses from ours. And my mom and her became friends.
