Lorraine became my sister-in-law in 1974. She was one of the most fun loving amazing people I had ever met and I grew to love her dearly. We had so many "crazy" fun times together whenever we had family visits. She was a real spitfire, constantly on the go, whether taking care of kids, husbands, extended family, she would go from daylight till dark hardly ever sitting down. She is going to be sorely missed by many. My thoughts and prayers go out to the entire Josepson family. May your many wonderful memories help you through the dark days ahead. God called a special "angel" home and now she is residing in a very special place along with all of those that have gone before her. RIP Lorraine until we meet again. Love, Tana

MY DEAREST PATTY,Words fail to describe the pure emotion and sympathy I fell in the passing of your dear mother. Though I never met her I am just the same saddened as though we were always close.
If only we could dry our tears and roll back the years to have time again, when our MOTHERS soothed our fears.
My mom often said she wished she could be a fly or small bird to follow me around and know what I was doing, well I know she got that wish because I feel her presence always!
