I enjoyed meeting Lore when she visited Judy and Dicky. She seemed like a loving and fun person. There will be a grand reunion some day with this family in Heaven.

I'm so sorry for your family's loss. Lore was such a sweet loving lady. We met your family through First Mount Pleasant Baptist Church in Franklin. Became reacquainted with Don & Monika at Indianapolis Baptist Temple (I think) Our thoughts and prayers are with your family during this difficult time.

Good Morning Picklesimer family! My name is Amanda Blackburn I work at Community South Hospital in Indianapolis, IN on 5 South. I helped Ms. Lore when she as here. Ms. Lore was an amazing, kind, sweet, beautiful lady with an amazing heart full of love and kidness for others. In the time I worked with Ms, Lore she thought me so much about her life in Germery and how she moved here to the United states. Lore was full of sun shine every time I came into see her; she always has a beautiful smile on her face. She made me feel so proud to be able to help others. I will miss you a lot Ms. Lore. Thank you for bring so much sun shine into Community South. I will never forget you. God Bless you all. Amanda Blackburn
