Lori Johnson

We once more mourn the passing of one of our bloggers, Lori Johnson. She used the screenname ABIcequeen on AOL and kept the blog Lori's Letterbox.

Lori passed away on 16 February 2011 at the age of 66, having bravely fought pancreatic cancer for a long period before that. In spite of her serious illness, Lori went on a roadtrip through 2010 with her husband, Chuck. The journey had to be cut short due to her deteriorating medical condition. She left this life in the company of her family, away from pain and suffering, and into eternal rest.

Lori will be sorely missed in our community, as she touched the lives of many. Even when she was quite ill herself, she would still contact others who were unwell and enquire after their wellbeing. Neither was she going to let the cancer get in the way of planning for other trips out and about - British Columbia was on her calendar for this spring.

Although her blog remains on the Net for you to leave messages for Lori's family, her email address on Gmail has been discontinued after it became compromised a few days before her passing.

Lori, rest in peace.

You were so special Lori, always a great support to me, always checking in when I did not post in a while. You fought with such courage and bravery. Guido has given you such a fitting tribute. I will never forget you and was proud to call you friend even though we never met.

Rest in peace, you will remain in my heart. God grant strength to your family. xxxxxxx
