Condolences to your family. If I remember correctly your mom helped chaperone a senior trip to DC, not sure what year (77 or 79?), but she was very fun to have on the trip.

Aunt Lorraine will be missed. One of my favorite stories of her was when they were at the casino with my grandparents and Lorraine sat next to someone who had the same shirt as her and told the woman “I like your shirt!” It took her a few minutes to realize she was sitting next to a mirror and it was her own reflection. My favorite part of this story is that she told on herself ;) She had such a great sense of humor and wasn’t afraid to laugh at herself! I will miss her dearly!
