I never had the privilege of meeting Miss Lorraine, but I have had the honor of knowing her daughter Candace. She must have been a wonderful person to have raised such an amazing person. I am so sorry for your loss and pray for you and your family to find peace and acceptance in knowing your mothers legacy continues. The person you've become Candace, and specifically the daughter you are is the gift your mom bestowed upon you. It is something you have and will continue to demonstrate to others. My prayers are with you and your family.
