Pastor Tom, Martha and Tim and families,
Praying that God will comfort your hearts as you go through this rough valley. Dear, sweet Lorraine is in the arms of Jesus - her ultimate victory - whole and free. But oh the empty spot that she leaves. No matter what this world threw at her, the smile was always there and through it all she knew “God has a plan”. We so wish we could be there for her celebration of life - please know you are all being held up before the throne and we will be continuing to pray in the days ahead.

I've never forgotten knowing Lorraine & Tom as neighbors & members of 1st Wesleyan Church in Jackson, MS. Lorraine had such a pure, sweet voice & I especially enjoyed her duets with Martha. I still use her recipe for thick chocolate sauce!

Loved Lorraine. We first met when our youth groups got together but mostly the fun we had at West Chazy Camp. We both had lost a foot but we mostly had God in common. Will miss her at camp this summer!!
