“I was very sad to hear of Lorraine's passing. My Mom and Lorraine grew up together. Mom was Lorraine's Aunt and they were born a few months apart. Mom always said Lorraine would outlive us all and she almost did. I remember get togethers at Lorraine and Gail's filled with stories and loud laughter. My heart aches for all her family, especially Kenny, Kary, and Marla.”
