Funeral Plans

Plans have been set to celebrate Lori’s life for this Saturday, February 13 here in Dayton, OH at Fairhaven Church.

We will have a visitation from 2-4 PM to meet with family members and offer condolences followed by the funeral service from 4-6 PM. There will not be a body present because Lori donated her body as an anatomical gift to the Boonshoft School of Medicine at Wright State University.

A month from now, there may be a simple memorial service in Springfield, IL, but as of now those plans are yet to be determined. I would encourage you to come to the funeral this Saturday if a Springfield memorial doesn’t work out and would leave you with regrets.

For those traveling, the below hotels are offering bereavement rates. When calling to book, mention you will be traveling for a funeral and request the bereavement rate. We do have a room block at the DoubleTree. There are no shortage of hotels in Dayton, but these three were the ones called to check on rates. Feel free to book wherever you’d prefer.

  1. Thank you Mark. Looking forward to seeing you and the kids. Love you all

  2. Thank you Mark; I very much regret that I cannot be there. I would greatly love to celebrate Lori’s life with you, but will have to do so from Oahu. You all are very much in my heart and my prayers.

  3. Josh and I will be there and are more than willing to help with the kids during that time if needed.
