Lorraine is seen here with her mom, shortly before her mom
passed away April 2005.
A wonderful mother, daughter, sister, friend, has passed away much much too early. Why? Why did God take you from us so soon when you seemed to have so much to live for? As a single mother you did such a great job of raising your two wonderful kids. You have much to be proud of in them. We all loved Lorraine, she was one to always give without asking for anything in return, and she will be truly missed by all. You definitely left a legacy of love Lorraine, you always gave much more than we could ever return. Your friends and family were blessed to have had you in our lives and Lorraine your love and spirit will continue to be in our hearts forever...
