The world lost a honorable, giving and compassionate woman yesterday, with the passing of my friend, Lory.
Lory taught me everything I know about computers, encouraged me to take a PC repair course which provided me a good lively hood. Throughout the years Lory was always available to me to answer my questions and help me figure out a computer problem I had at work.
I never heard Lory say an unkind word about anybody, ever. Lory was the kindest and most non-judgmental person I ever met. She got along with everybody.
Deeply religious and a strong woman of faith, Lory taught catechism for years and years. She not only taught vacation Bible school, she even talked this non-Catholic into teaching quilting classes during VBS for several years.
When Lory was first diagnosed with breast cancer seven years ago and lost her hair, I began knitting her hats. With the treatment she was taking she said she’d be bald for a year, so I knitted her a different hat every couple of months, especially sleep caps. Being the generous person she was, Lory asked if she could pass on her hats to other patients at the cancer center. So I made more.
I’m going to soooo miss my dear friend. She taught me to be more patient with others, more forgiving to myself and more generous with everybody.
Please join me in saying a prayer for Lory’s glorious arrival into heaven and a prayer for Lory’s family who are feeling the loss the most.
Remember, you are all loved!!!
