I am saddened to hear of Lorraine's passing. So many times in this life things go unsaid and it is important to me that Lorraine's family know how much she treasured them. There was a time when we spent a lot of time together and Lorraine always spoke of her children and grandchildren. She spoke with such love and pride. She loved you all so much and was so proud of you all. In the days, months and years ahead I hope you all find comfort in the love your Mom gave to you. Thinking of you all and sending love xo
