One of our best friends passed away yesterday. We are helping our other friends deal with this loss, and we will be helping the family in dealing with their loss.
Lori was 56 years old, had suffered from Brittle Bone Disease, but coped very well with it. Walking, pulling together neighbors to become friends, hosting holiday feasts, etc. She was one of a kind. A truly beautiful, loving person. One you could never out-give. She will be missed so much, because she was the hub of our community and a dear friend to all of us.
We are all still in shock. She had had an asthma attack that night, but had used her inhaler and everyone thought she was ok. We don’t know the circumstances of her death, except that the sheriff’s office found her lying face down in her hallway. Some of the neighbors had not received their regular morning telephone calls from her, and no one had seen her outside. She usually walked her dog early every morning. So the neighbors called the police and they took it from there. We were not able to see her body, because of the position they found her in. The coroner’s department said he couldn’t let us see her like that. We have to wait until tomorrow to find out about funeral arrangements, and we will be clearing out, and cleaning her apartment. This is going to be so hard for everyone involved.
We would appreciate all of your prayers as we try to minister to these other people.
God bless you and thank you for your prayers and support during this time.
Yours in Christ,
Sharon & Erick
