Thank you Loraine for being such a wonderful and loving mother to me. You always treated me as one of your sons. I love you and miss you so much because my life will not be the same without you. I have no doubt you are in Heaven with your Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. I am so thankful for all the great memories with the Quirk family, reunions, many great meals, and the times we spent at church. I’m so thankful for my wife Lori and look forward to the memories in the future with the Quirk family. Peace and God bless the Quirk family and all who were blessed to know and love Loraine.
