I've learned in my life and family that cancer doesn't play fair or discriminate.  And, around 2am this morning, it took another special person in our community.  Lori (Brownell) Wagner, one of my fellow classmates from the 1984 class at Hannibal High School passed away.  In school, she had an incredible personality and a genuine friendliness about her.  She went on to make a difference in many area children's lives as a teacher.

Last month, Lori was awarded a well-deserved Golden Apple from WGEM.  If you get a moment today, check out the video of that presentation.
