Dear Nikki Kristopher Laverne Carl Holly and family I was so sad to read of Lori's passing. Lori and I met in junior high and quickly became good friends. We had so much fun going to parties dances and Grand Beach. When High School was finished our friendship remained close. We attended each others showers and weddings. Our children were around the same age so we used to take them on outings together and have coffee at each others homes. I was so thrilled when I was invited to Nikkis social and wedding. We somehow lost touch over the years and I did not know Norm had passed away who was also a very special person. She was a beautiful person an awesome friend and confidant Our deepest and most sincere sympathy on your loss. May all your cherished memories comfort you at this difficult time. Gloria Pongracz.

My sincere condolences on your loss. I pray that memories of happier times will see you through your time of grief! "God gave us memory so we might enjoy roses in winter." I am a respected researcher of Mennonite genealogy, and would like to connect your loved one to her/your family and ancestry, which I am unable to do given the information in her obituary. My on-line project contains over 500,000 individuals, including several thousand Derksen/Doerksens (among them my mother), but no identifiable link to Lori/Norm or their ancestries. Please contact me at an appropriate time if you are willing to share/exchange details. Thank you. All information about living individuals is suppressed to protect your/their privacy. And please excuse this intrusion into your time of grief.
