Lori 1980-2009

Lorelei (Lori) was killed by a drunk driver 4 days before her 29th birthdate. Her funeral was on her birthdate.

A habitual drunk driver who was on probation for drunk driving , had already violated probation and was driving without a license crossed the center line while drunk. My precious daughter Lori was ejected into an oncoming car's windshield. She died of serious head trauma hours later. She leaves behind her three lovely daughters all under the age of 10 yrs.
Almost 2 years later the drunk driver who caused her death is on house arrest and still dragging out his trial date.

The man responsible for Lori's death was sentenced to a plea of 5-7 years for manslaughter/DwI.
Little consolation since Nothing will bring sweet Lorelei back to us.

loss of child
by: Anonymous

Thanks for your kind words. I am sorry to hear about your daughter also. It is even more senseless to have our loved ones killed by drunks who should have stayed inside their homes while drunk.
Even the incarceration of the one who caused their deaths willl be little consolation . We will never see our loved one again no matter.
Lori was my only daughter . I miss her alot. I am sure I always will.

Sorry for your loss
by: Anonymous

I am so sorry for the loss of your beautiful Lori. I understand your loss as my sweet 13 year old daughter, Nicole, was also killed by a habitual drunk driver. To lose a child is the most difficult thing to cope with in all the losses people experience. And it is even more difficult when it was 100% preventable. In talking about our losses and sharing, it helps us to heal but it also helps to educate the public about the losses that so many experience every day. Maybe we can start to get people to recognize the problem and stop this horrible crime. God Bless You.
