Lori Blevins graduated with the class of ’73.

She and I had our first date on an extra credit assignment by Ms. Butler to see and review a SciFi / horror movie called “The Hellstrom Chronicle”. My brother Marty worked at the Reynolda Theater, so we got in for free, but he had to let us in halfway through the movie from the back door so we could sneak in under a cloak of darkness. Turns out, our clandestine plan was unnecessary as we were the only two in the theater. We laughed aloud during the apocalyptic gripping satirical depiction of man’s battle against insects… spoiler alert, it doesn’t end so well for man.

Lori and I dated for the next year, sharing many good times and not so good times in the turbulent caldron of high school. I will always remember Lori as kind soul, full of wonder and laughter. She never had a harsh word for anyone and was someone who lived life to it’s fullest, always on her own terms.

She will be missed.
