Condolence & Memory Journal

Lori masterfully connected so many to appreciate the simple joys of life, a walk, a parade, nite out in the park, a scoop of ice cream, a slice of pie...home made preferably. She made us all better people and for that she will remain forever in our hearts.

Condolences to the Hunter family. Lori was an amazing woman who was a great example to us all by showing great pride and service in our community.

Everything that has been written here is so true about Lori. She was a champion, funny, loving, determined and so focused on her family and friends...I count myself as a lucky person to be in the same family as Lori...and we spent lots of time trying to learn more about our past family. I'll cherish forever the Montana reunions, the Conroy dances, the 'K car', our meeting with John Travolta, the 4th of July, last years trip to Ardsley, so I close with a very special tribute of ours: Good night, sleep tight, don't let the bedbugs bite ( and then you shake and wiggle )...love always to Art, Max and Alex

I did not know Lori well - I met her through biking with Art. She certainly had a zest for life and made an instant impression. She was real and didn't tolerate anything but the real you. Art: be well and strong during this team. May all the memories be for a blessing.

Lori was a remarkable woman, and we will miss her. As Janet Grice wrote here earlier, we ALL followed her lead. She always seemed to know where she was going.

There are times like these that I start to question why people like Lori are taken way too soon. I can guarantee that "the big man" up stairs has bigger plans for Lori than any of us realize. I only had the opportunity to hang out with Lori a couple of times, but the stories and few experiences that I had with her made me understand why everyone loved her as much as they did. I will make sure that my sons will get a book read to them each and every day, I'm thinking Goodnight Moon tonight. God Bless you Lori and the rest of your family. Love, Dan, Jennifer, Bennett, and Jackson Mc Nickle

To the Hunters, Lori is a survivor as you all are! Family, love and strength is what kept her going. She was never defeated my this. She won! She will continue to live on thru each of you Art, Alex and Max. Grab a beer hold it high and cheers to Ms. Lori! For she will always be watching over Ardsley and forever be with each of you every day! Much love.

Thanksgiving at the Hunters was a welcome tradition for the Grice/Lloyd family, since our biological families lived far away. Lori always told me what to make - usually an ethnic recipe from Gourmet or something, and I enjoyed following her lead. Aside from eating boundless quantities of food in her home on Thanksgiving, I remember huffing and puffing trying to keep up with her walking the hills of Ardsley. She was one of the strongest woman (morally, emotionally and physically) I have known.

I just want to express my sympathy and sadness for Lori's family. I know she was such a wonderful and loving wife, mom, sister, and friend! I only met Lori in person once or twice but have talked to her many times over the last 10-11 years and will miss our conversations. She was always very witty and I loved her sense of humor! We never finished a conversation without her asking about my kids. In addition to that, what I'll remember the most about Lori was the importance and value she put on reading.

Art, Max and Alex- Lori was one of my heroes, a role model for us all. I am heartbroken. Be strong, as Lori would have wanted you to be. We will get through this together. Peter

To the Hunter family, I will always remember the times we have had together, the great thanksgiving dinners and the the first of Max's birthday parties I went to where we all went on a bike ride. Lori was a wonderful woman, she was strong spirited and had a big heart. All she ever wanted was the best for everyone, she strove to make everyone happy and safe, while carrying a smile all the while. I will never forget her or her family.

So VERY heavy hearted today for such a great loss of an AMAZING strong lady and a dear, dear friend. Will so deeply miss her anedotal observations, wry wit and seeing the world through her descriptive detailed palatte of colors, periwinkle blue to persimmon. To Lori the world was soo much more than ROYGBIV.....I did & will continue to cherish our friendship of 40++ years...
