Lori I did not have the opportunity to meet you
but we talked on a weekly basis when you called the TA office. i would answer the phone and you always said " Hey you " You shared your love of music and church with me. You cried when you were in pain and I would always say Lori it will get better. You are now singing in that Heavenly Choir you are in no more pain. I will miss your voice but I know you are at peace.
Sing loud Lori for all to hear.

We have known Lori for nearly six years since joining Siloamâ€™s choir and admired how Lori came to nearly every rehearsal and service, sometimes having to arrive very early or wait some time after depending on the transportation schedule. Iâ€™m sure it was the same for any of Loriâ€™s activities and it is a testament to her commitment that she was so involved with the church and at St. Joâ€™s. With Covid-19 concerns, we are sending our condolences and regret not being able to attend in person. Thank you for the suggestion to donate to Siloam.

Deepest sympathy to all of Loriâ€™s family.
I met Lori when I joined the Siloam choir where we both sang soprano. Chats on the phone and messaging kept us connected and especially during these last few months which were so difficult for her. Cherish the good memories.

After just returning from Loriâ€™s visitation, we were so grateful to meet all of her wonderful family. We appreciated the stories that went along with the many photographs, especially as a young girl. We wanted to let her family how much we adored Lori - always a beautiful smile, gorgeous hair and the best dressed in the room! Every trip to church ended with a big hug and quick visit before she had to catch her bus. One of our favourite memories was when the 4 of us went to see Hillary Duff and we got front row seats! She was an incredible role model for so many and worked hard to open up barriers for all. Lori made each day count giving support to many organizations out in the community. We appreciated the help and support Lori gave to each of us and we will truly miss her glowing presence at Siloam.
May God hold you in the palm of his hand,
Lorraine Lewis, Lyndsay & Nicole Duffin
