Mike, Aubree and Drew, we are so sorry for your loss. Lori was such an amazing lady and we were so blessed to get to know her and all of you through our Hildebrandt connection. Lori touched so many children's lives and we were lucky enough to have Heather at Hildebrandt with Lori as her Kindergarten teacher and director. Lori was an inspiration to all. She will be missed. We are sending hugs and prayers your way. Our thoughts are with you during this very difficult time. With Sympathy,
Megan and Mike Martin ( and Heather)

Lori was such an amazing, caring and loving director for Hildebrandt. Two of my sons were fortunate enough to know her. She always welcomed parents and kids with that bright smile. She was truly missed when she went to Bright Horizons! Our family is so very sorry for the loss of Lori, your wife and mother and hope you hold onto her memories and that warm smile.

I couldn't believe what I saw in the newspaper! I am shocked and saddened to hear of Lori's passing! She was such a kind, caring and loving teacher/director at Bright Horizons! My granddaughters had been going there for 5 years, and still would be if not for the pandemic. I will pray for you at this extremely difficult time as I know you lost a wonderful wife and mother, way too soon!

My heart breaks hearing this news. Lori was such a wonderful, caring, compassionate and great person who truly cared and poured her heart into Bright Horizons. She took such great care of our son and was always the bright spot of my day. She will truly be missed.
