Aunt Lora was a very special lady. No matter if we had not seen her for a few months, she would always have many kind words for us to enjoy. Of course, not to mention.....she always had a fresh pie to share with us. I cannot even think of a kinder soul. She and Uncle Roy will always be remembered as "the kindest Aunt and Uncle ever".......Now you are together where you both want to be......Ronnie and Joyce
