Sherri and Bill, I was so shocked to hear of your mother's passing. So sorry for your loss. I have such great memories of fun events, Sunday dinners together, and cook outs on Eastern Ave. She was a thoughtful, generous, kind and loving person. I am so honored that I got to be a part of her life, and I am grateful that I knew her. She will always be in my prayers and in my heart. My deepest sympathy and prayers for all of you.

As neighbor to Lorraine, Sherri and Bill for many years I can tell you that she is blessed that she was able to pass while at home under the complete dedicated care from Sherri and Bill. Not many people I know could have cared for someone so ill for so long. May she rest in peace. We have another angel.

I have good memories of her taking Cherri and me to various activities that we wanted to do when we were young teenagers. She was always good to me and I remember her fondly. I am glad that she is at peace and free of pain.

Aunt Lorraine, I have many wonderful memories of you....many of which came from stories my dad, your brother Henry, told me. He loved his baby sister, and could tell story after story about all their good times. Love you always...Denise

I am really going to miss my grandmother but am glad she is free of all of the pain and suffering she has been through. I have so many good memories too many to share here. My only regret is that we lived so far apart I didn't get to see her much at all and she never got to meet my children. She is in heaven now with my youngest son Ryan and what a meeting I am sure that was for both of them! I will never forget you Grandma! I Love You Always!

I am going to miss my grandmother as will my brother, Brian, my parents who cared for her all these years, and all our family across the states who she loved very much..... I am saddened by her passing but happy that her pain is over with and she is reunited with her brother Hank and her mother (Our Nanny) who she missed a lot.... I am a better person for all Grandma taught me and shared with me... I will miss her and always love her :*(
