Legacy for Lori
$54,933 of $50k goal
She often would talk highly of her son, Kaydin, whom she referred to as "the boy," and would tell stories of his intelligence, wit, and how he would amaze her every single day. She adored Callie's high-spirited personality and the fact that she seemed wise beyond her years. Her kids meant everything to her.
In all of our sadness and grief, we want to give to Kaydin and Callie, who have just tragically lost both of their parents. Let's come together as a community and open our hearts to this family, so we can provide some sense of comfort during this unimaginably hard time.
I just want to thank everyone for all the support shown for Lori's children. It is very much appreciated, and we know Lori is proud at all the funds that have been raised.
I want to personally invite you to a very special event this Saturday at Perdue's Grill in Tremont, IL. This is a family-friendly benefit including three live bands, food, drinks, and tons of fun! There will be raffle prizes, a 50/50 drawing, auctions (with very cool stuff I might add), and Legacy for Lori t-shirts. There will also be activities for the kids like face painting, balloon animals, and a bouncy house (weather permitting)!
All of the money raised will go to directly to her children.
If you are able to come this weekend, we would be very happy to see you! Come out and celebrate the lives of Lori Moore and Lance Griffel as we raise support for her two young children.
Where: Perdue's Grill, 201 Sampson St., Tremont, IL
When: Saturday, October 11 from 3PM to 11PM

Legacy for Lori
Also, there is a benefit for the kids being planned in October...I will let everyone know once a date and time have been secured. The benefit will take place at Purdue's Grill in Tremont.
We will be leaving this fundraising site up for at least a few more weeks. I have been notified that People Magazine will be releasing another online article about the tragedy tomorrow. This will include the link to the fundraising site. People Magazine will also have a printed article in this week's issue of the actual magazine about Lori and Lance. Let's pray that some good can come out of this horribly sad situation.
Please continue to share this fundraiser with people you know...every little bit is going to help support these kids. Thanks! http://funds.gofundme.com/index.php?route=fundmanager#

I would first like to start by saying I feel such grief for these children. I was fortunate to be able To leave my abuser and come out the other side with my kids and my life. So many are not that fortunate and I am grateful EVERYDAY that I have another day with them... If only "we" could of seen it coming.... theres ALWAYS going to be the "what if's" but let please dont allow them consume you and your time here in this world, we only get ONE life so live it to the fullest and BE HAPPY!! God bless XO to those precious children whom I'm sure are being well taken care of...
Deepest condolences for the loss of such a young woman and mother. She will be missed and live on through those children.
I am so so so so so so so sorry for your loss, it anguishes me to see anyone go through anything, but your story has profoundly touched my heart and i will share this with as many as i can and contribute. God bless
I didn't know Lori but wish I had. The demons of cancer has taken many of my loved ones away. Richard Henderson went home to Jesus 6/11 after a short painful battle with pancreas caner. Because of him and his wife, Michele, I have been attending Church every Sunday for 2-1/2 years and healed from addiction. Praying for Lori's family and friends. God Bless though our savoir Jesus.
So sorry for your loss. Your words "asset to the world" were spot on. Sending prayers.
From my family to yours. We are so sorry for your loss. May you find comfort in her memory.
No words can heal the sadness to her friends and family I did not know Lori but I am so very sorry to you all God Bless and to those babies it seems has a wonderful support group
so sorry for your loss prayers to all
