  • Lorrie was my first love. When i told my mother, who was driving me to St Marks, she drove off the
    road ! Never was there a more loving, funny, and better friend to anybody. Whenever i saw her, no
    matter the situation (even when we were late coming home from her prom ) she was always……
    …SMILING !!! To quote Tina Turner, “She was THE BEST !”
