Lora was my best friend through high school.   She was a witty girl ... always ready with a comeback.   She was so knowledgeable about sports and use to 'make me' go to the football games with her.   She would spend her time explaining the calls being made and what was happening on the field.  We stayed friends up to the time she died.   Her body just wore out.  I think about her frequently and will always miss her.
