In lieu of flowers
Personal note from Barbara Hutcherson
When a life was lived as well and kindly as was Orpha's life, that person's passing leaves a void in this world. Your memories and stories of Orpha's impact on your life fill that void with light and bring comfort to others who loved her.

Lori asks that in lieu of flowers you take time to share a memory or donate to one of the named organizations.
