Lora (as I affectionately called Ma) was the sweetest and energetic person. You would make me a pan of dressing for my birthday because she knew how much I loved your version. I loved seeing your smile, hearing you laugh and watch you do a little shimmy when your favorite song came on the radio while I hung out at her house with Robin and Mike, you will be missed greatly...rest in peace beautiful.
Love Gail
