Wisdom from My Sister Lori It’s been a very long three months for myself and my family. We went from a question of ‘What’s this bump’ to a series of ‘celebration of life’ ceremonies with many trips to emergency in between. My sister, Lori May Kloesel was wise and warm, understated and perennially kind and generous. Lori’s loving, calming presence was always grounded, and always sprinkled with good humor and deep acceptance. Below are the top ten words of wisdom I learned from her.
