Private services will be held. While there will not be a public service, the family encourages Tory’s friends to gather together via Zoom or in person to celebrate her in their own special way.
In lieu of flowers, Tory would appreciate a donation to the PanCAN Foundation (www.pancan.org) to help find a cure for pancreatic cancer.
Tory, your positive attitude, caring manner, and gentle spirit will all be greatly missed. We are glad you are not suffering, but we will miss you.
