I love you, mom. I will cherish all the time we had together and all the calls. You shared my joy and helped me through the sad times and you will be missed.

I have fun memories of my Aunt Lorraine. I moved away when young, but we used to spend holidays with the family. Those memories stayed with me wherever we moved around to. When we returned, and visited again, Lorraine was always so perky, so upbeat, so spry, didn't hold back ever. I think my Aunt Lorraine was such a great example of who Jesus wants us to be; loving one another, taking care of others when in need, giving of yourself to others. In her later years, she ended up being on the receiving end of care, but had taught her family well. Lorraine passed a legacy to her kids who know care for others; what more can you ask for in life than to make a mark on those around you that they pass on and continue with a piece of who you were. Aunt Lorraine, I have sweet memories of you, thank you for the example you left for us.

John Young I will always be grateful for the care that Lorraine gave to my mother and father, somehow she became the caregiver of the family I am sure she did not ask for it she just did it because of her love for people. She also was the care giver for her mom and dad and also an Aunt and am sure others that she came across. My prayers are with the family as you celebrate her life and memory.

Deepest sympathy going out to the family. May your memories help you through this difficult time. I will always remember her working in the beautiful yard and her watching over the neighborhood activity. Rest in peace Lorraine.
