When we were in high school I would sometimes spend the night at Lori's house. Her mom would make us homemade tortillas with beans and chorizo, I loved it. Lori would play a record called "I've been to Paradise, But I've Never Been to Me" by Charlene D'Angelo. She loved that song. I love the memories I have of her. I am so sorry for your loss. I thought you might like a happy memory of her.
