Lorna Lopez Memorial Fund
Domestic Violence claimed the life of our friend and caring nurse, Lorna Lopez, RN. We would hear that unique and eccentric giggle down the hall and know that Lorna was laughing. She was so fun, always happy and smiling! And she had many reasons to laugh and smile. Lorna was a beautiful and charismatic woman, passionate and strong. She was the devoted mother of four beautiful children, a tolerant wife, loving sister and daughter. She was an amazing and compassionate nurse and a Christian who strongly believed in God. She was a committed wife and would often say "Well that is the man that God gave me so I have to make the best of things." She always held out hope that one day things would get better. She wanted nothing more than to protect her children and give them security. Her biggest fear was that if she left it would be hard on her children. But as the years went by, Lorna gained strength. She asked him for a divorce because she knew she needed to flee from the abuse. Yet, even as she asked him for a divorce, her heart was with her husband. She worried more about him than she did about her own safety. Even in her moment of darkness and despair, we know in our hearts that she was thinking of her children. As a Registered Nurse, she often did that, putting the needs of others before herself.
Lorna Lopez lost her life to Domestic Violence on March 14, 2013. Lorna never allowed her turmoil from home to interfere with her patient care. Although she suffered in silence, she always advocated for her patients. We will no longer hear her sweet laugh, no longer see her beautiful smile and no longer witness her compassionate care of others. But though we cannot change these tragic events of the recent past, we can help to move forward and provide hope for the future. Lorna was her family's main source of financial support. We know above all she wanted her children to be loved and cared for. Please consider helping us to show our support by making a donation. All profits will go towards her children (ages 8-17) for their continued needs and education. Thank you!
The services for Lorna will be held at:
Green Acres Memorial Park and Mortuary
11715 Cedar Avenue
Bloomington, CA 92316
Viewing: Thursday 3/28/13 ~ 4:00pm-8:00pm
Funeral: Friday 3/29/13 ~ 10:00am-1:00pm
In memory of Lorna's life, please join her children in increasing awareness against Domestic Violence by bringing a purple candle.We will shine the light in ALL the dark places....one day at a time.
Lorna's children, mother ("Mama Daisy") and brother Carlos would be honored to invite family, friends and everyone who had the privilege of knowing Lorna to gather after the funeral services for a "Sweet Luncheon" in loving memory of a great mother, daughter, sister and friend! Please bring a dish to serve at least 10 people.
I want to say thank you for everyone's donation it is greatly appreciated. Can you spread the word as well that will be so helpful. Thank you!
Lorna may your beautiful soul rest in peace. You were always kind to all you came in contact with. My staff as well as myself send our condolences to all your family especially your wonderful children which I am sure you are looking down from the gates of heaven and smiling your bright smile. I will forever remember your one of a kind laugh how could I forget :). Although I taught my staff to go into the facility do our job and get out they all have expressed their deepest sympathy for your loss. I have ordered Domestic Violence purple wristbands for my staff to wear in your memory.
There is actually a separate fund through victims if violent crime for the funeral costs. This money is going directly going directly to Carlos for expenses related to the children. I hope that was helpful and god bless.
Thank you, everyone for your support. In the description it mentions the donations going to her 4 children but it is primarily for the funeral expenses. Those who have contributed thank you so much. Those who are thinking about it, anything will be appreciated. Thank you, so much for your help during this tough time.
My heart is heavy for Lorna and her family. I pray her family is able to find peace and live the life Lorna would want them to have. I will miss you my friend... Rest in peace Lorna.
Dear Lord, may your love, and healing find the hearts of those affected by this tragedy May Lorna's children, and entire family be restored and may they someday and be able to move forward with no resentment, no hatred and most important, a forgiving heart. I can only pray Lord, that you are first and number one in their hearts Lord. And that they are able to move past this tragic but so often happening cause! Let us not judge, but forgive for this is your way Lord!! Protect Lorna's children Lord, Keep them safe, strong and always together Lord. May their heart never ponder, nor doubt your Love Lord, may they stay strong in your faith and always keep them under your covering father God. In Jesus, your sons name, I pray!!! My deepest and most sincere condolences to your entire family, for all those affected. This hit really close to home and I fear that their are many, many out there that need to be reached out to. A kind word, a helping hand, sometimes, that's all it takes. Our hearts can betray us and we must see the red flags and try to avoid tragedies similar to this one. God bless
With deepest sympathy and love, may God restore the emptiness, the pain of losing this beautiful person who commitment to serve others as a nurse. Words are not enough to extinguish the aches and pains of his tragic event. I trust the Lord to restore and strengthen her children, the families that have been affected. Let us not judge, but be compassionate towards this sensitive issue. The children have a long road to face and live with the knowledge of events that took their mom. Pray for Lornas children and her family to start the healing and restoration. Lorna, may you rest in peace and know that you are loved and live forever in our hearts.
