To the family of my friend Lora Bailey, I met Lora about three years ago and we became friends immediately. What a precious lady. She used every adversity in her life, (which were many), to try to benefit others going through similar circumstances. She showed me how to be strong and courageous in the middle of the storm. I loved her dearly and I miss her very much already.
I pray for your comfort and peace during this difficult time. Hold on to the beautiful memories that you have of this extraordinary lady.
