Lori Your Mom….. What makes a person a legend one who is admired by a lot of people and that she was. My friend, my dancing partner, her smile; day after day, week after week, month after month year after year lets go as far as saying over a decade she brought that same smile into class every single time!! She was dedicated and so loyal to her fitness and health. The loss is incomprehensible. It doesn’t make any sense but as I have come to learn there are just some things we will never understand on this side of heaven. Barb one day I will meet you on the Golden Street and we will “Twist Again” Love you my friend!! Patty
