      "You are my Sunshine, my only Sunshine, you make me happy when skies are gray...."  I worked with Lori briefly in a classroom where she began every morning singing this song with the kids.  I loved those moments to start our day.  I will think of her everytime the song pops in my head. Peace and hugs and smiles.
