My thoughts and prayers go out to the family. I have known Loraine for over 25 years and have loved her since our first meeting. As many have said she was passionate about everything she cared about, especially her family and friends. Even when she was in such pain that she could hardly walk her thoughts were more about others then herself. Loraine you will never feel that deafening pain anymore in your back, and for that I am happy, but you will be missed.

We were saddened to hear of Loraine’s passing. She truly had a kind heart. Whoever she spoke to, she did so with so much interest in the other person. Loraine left people better than she found them ! A very special talent! Our hearts are weary and our prayers go out to those who will miss her most. I know how proud she was of all the kids, step kids, grandkids, great grandkids! She loved you all so much!

I remember her telling Sharon a story at the table in the kitchen. Sharon must of zoned out because she leaned in and looked her in the face and said "Sharon are you there" ?

We all busted out laughing and I could not stop laughing. She was so serious when she said it.

Rest easy Loraine 🥰
