Some have asked her, what gives her joy after all of the devastating losses she has suffered in her life…
Her response is… “I remember a very dark time, it was shortly after My Jenna’s accident. I kept hearing my dad’s voice tell me, ‘Lori, you are going to help so many people through this experience.’ It became my purpose, and when you find your God given purpose you also find joy in helping others.
So, simply explained, Lori is living out her legacy!
