Lori Proctor Obituary – I can honestly say that this is the first time I have ever posted anything on Facebook, and it was one of the hardest things I have ever done. We lost a compass, a source of joy and love, and a pillar of peace when Lori left a week ago. I’m sure many of you already know this. She was, and always will be, the love of my life. She also served as Dylan and Eva’s and my family’s personal god. She was regarded as the center of the universe by both of them, who looked up to her.

It is difficult for me to even begin to imagine what lies ahead of us as the kids and I embark on a journey that we did not plan and for which we did not make any preparations. After considerable reflection, I’ve come to the conclusion that Lori has already put us in a position where we can take on the challenge, just as she has done for many other people and in so many other ways in the past. Many of you are aware that Lori found this to be easy. I can’t sufficiently convey how much Lori has meant to us and will continue to mean to us in the future.

I sincerely hope that everyone can continue to show the same kind of generosity that Lori brought into the world as we move towards the holiday season. This is a time for sharing love, joy, and peace, for people to be kind to one another, and for people to look out for one another. Spend a few minutes every morning and evening reflecting on the individuals you value and the other passengers on this train we call Earth. In the coming year, learn from the wiser people around you and pass on your knowledge to those who want to learn.

I’d like to paraphrase a couple of Duane Allman’s inspirational quotes. Live in the moment and try to be the best version of yourself you can be. The ability to love those in need and to be open to receiving love from those who are willing to provide it is something I’d want to add as well. Without hesitation, give those around you the chance to understand and feel the love you have for them. WHOEVER WOULD LIKE TO REMEMBER LORI: At the Oak Grove United Methodist Church, which is situated at 1722 Oak Grove Road in Decatur, Georgia 30033, we will honor Lori and commemorate her life on December 22.

Everyone is encouraged to attend. We will begin collecting visitor names about 10:00 a.m. for the memorial ceremony, which will commence at 11:00 a.m. In the future, we’ll provide more details and disseminate them on this page and in other places. This will outline a variety of ways that the many people who have kindly offered to help can do so. Without Lori, who has been more than just our travel partner but also our guide, we are just now starting to understand how to manage our adventure.

There has been an incredible outpouring of love and support for us. Your compassion, love, generosity, and support have all given me hope and relief at this trying time. There aren’t enough words to adequately explain how grateful we are, I can only speak for the rest of the family.
