Dear Joe and Family,
May this Christmas be a time of good memories and shared laughter about all the happy times you had with Lorraine by your sides. She is still present with you in spirit, and will always be there until you all meet again in heaven.
Lorraine was a CWL mentor to me (probably unbeknownst to her!). She was my ideal of a CWL President, and influenced me in many ways in my own CWL journey. I will miss her. Your whole family were in my prayers at all the Holy Shrines we visited in Israel/Palestine in November.
A life well lived.
Love and prayers,
Maureen Webster
