I was a member of Montebello Seniors with Lorraine and volunteered with her at Suffern Soup Kitchen. I was the lucky recipient of her famous Lamb Cake one time at Easter. Her Petite Four Cookie recipe is one of my favorite one.
My deepest condolence to her family and friends.

My memories of Lorraine go back 65 years when Tony and I got married and your Tony was our Best Man at our wedding. The years seem to fly but the memories are still there with all the children growing up and all the times we had together. I will never forget that. Will miss you. Love Mary.
