Will never forget the many days and nights we would listen to her playlist, talking and laughing just to do it all over again. Never got sick of that playlist! Lora was the best. A great friend and wonderful person to be around. She will be missed dearly.

I will remember Lora as a very talented girl with a brilliant mind. She sat down at the age of 4 and played the piano. She was also a person of great compassion and shared freely with what she had. Epilepsy was not kind to Lora, and she suffered more than most of us could ever understand. Praying she is now in the arms of Jesus and in total peace. We love you. Aunt Judy Uncle Richard
