Lori was the type of person that everything had to be great for her grandchildren. She adored them and cherished them every day, being a grandma was the best!! Lori spent all holidays decorating and spending quality time with her family. She had to make sure that for Halloween and Christmas, her house was a must-see attraction. She loved the holidays and being with her family and friends to celebrate.
