With deepest sympathies ~
I want to share with others how kind and thoughtful Auntie was (not that they needed to be reminded of this fact).
Aunt Lorraine gave my young son Joshua a gift prior to his passing in 2003. The gift was a blanket, complete with a teddy bear attached to it and "Joshua" monogrammed on it. It was so soft and cozy this blanket. When Josh passed, I gave the funeral director Auntie's blanket she had given to Joshua so that the blanket could surround Joshua in the casket. When Josh was buried, Aunt Lorraine's blanket was wrapped around Joshua and over his heart.
You see my dad, Aunt Lorraine's brother Louis, loved Joshua very much, as well as he loved his sister. I thought fitting to use the blanket in this way to honor both my dad/Poppy and Auntie Lorraine too at the time of my son's passing.
Would you believe, as Kyle we discussed yesterday, that Aunt Lorraine and her brother/my dad passed on the same date, but thirteen years apart. I believe this speaks volumes about family, relationships and love binding all.
Now, Auntie, Dad and my Joshua are together. I am so happy that Auntie gets to now be with ALL of her loved ones again.
May God grand comfort and peace to all of us that knew and loved Auntie Lorraine. Aunt Lorraine, you will forever be in my heart...along with the memory of Joshua's blanket.
