A card of sympathy from Dr. Fojo and staff http://www.loriblakeley.name/card_sympathy_fojo.djvu. Lori absolutely loved Dr. Fojo - Dr. Fojo's words of love for Lori. http://www.loriblakeley.name/fojo_words_of_love.htm

I believe that Lori was led to Dr. Fojo so as to assure her in that final stage of her life that all had been done and that truly God wanted her home with Him.

Here is a photograph of Lori and Dr. Fojo http://www.loriblakeley.name/loriblakeley_photos_jpeg/loriblakeley_titofojo20050406.jpg that Lori wanted me to take for her the day before she moved from the Intensive Care Unit to the Inpatient Unit.

I picked out the following song to be sung together by the congregation at Lori's funeral, "What a Friend We Have in Jesus." http://www.loriblakeley.name/loriblakeley_music/what_a_friend.htm I knew that this song meant so much to Lori and she would be pleased that her faith in her deliverance to Him would be acknowledged together in song by her family, friends, and the other Christians able to attend her service. It was also one of the songs sung at my father's funeral held at the First Baptist Church of Rotan on July 30, 1965 described on the Web page here http://www.royblakeley.name/roy_james_blakeley/remains_returned_funeral_burial.htm

Our beloved Lori has departed her life here on earth this afternoon surrounded by her family.

Details of the funeral will be posted later, but the plan is to schedule the funeral for next week. We want to enable her First Baptist Academy 2004 graduating classmates attending college will be finished with final exams so they can be in attendance. The service will be at the First Baptist Church, downtown Dallas.
