Dear Jessica, Taylor, Lesley, and Family, I am so sorry about the passing of your dear loved one. It is clear that Lorraine was a beautiful, courageous, and wonderfully accomplished person who truly loved The Lord.

Lesley, Jessica, Taylor and the entire family, my warmest condolences to you all. I pray that you will all take comfort in all the beautiful memories you have of Lorraine and also in the blessed hope that you will see her and be with her again, in Jesus' mighty name, amen!

“And now, dear brothers, I want you to know what happens to a Christian when he dies so that when it happens, you will not be full of sorrow, as those are who have no hope. For since we believe that Jesus died and then came back to life again, we can also believe that when Jesus returns, God will bring back with him all the Christians who have died.” The Living Bible

Through Lorraine's leadership (being my boss for fifteen years) at Compaq/HP, I gained a lot of confidence and I learned a lot from her. Lorraine always strived for the best results and worked very hard at achieving them. Lorraine was also the epitome of loving your family.
Lorraine, I miss you and love you; till we meet again.

Lesley, Jessica, Taylor, and all the Lawrence family, We know where Lorraine is and exactly what she is doing. She is with the Lord and she is praising Him. I worked with Lorraine for many years. She was a professional manager in all she did. Lorraine was strong in her love for her family and for her faith. I know the pain of losing those we love. I am praying for you at this difficult time.

I am so sad to hear about this loss. Lorraine helped with my Quality Training at HP. She was the reason why our program was able to attain ISO 9001:2008. Please accept my condolences to the family and prayers that you all may be strong in this time of need.

Lorraine was an expert, committed and professional when we worked together at HP. A great person that I could always count on to know what to do and to get it done. She was compassionate and dedicated. We were very fortunate to have been in her life and will miss her greatly.

What a true blessing it has been to be accepted as part of Lorraine's family. She was always willing to share her life stories at the many family gatherings for holidays, birthdays and after church lunches. The dedication to her family and her faith are two of the things I will admire about her. God Bless, Lesley, Jessica, Taylor & the entire family. With love, Craig Hart
