I met Lorraine through her involvement at Hope Ministries. She loved serving and helping those who are homeless, hurting and in need of help. She was a liasion between her church and Hope Ministries and got JEFC very involved. I will miss working with her. She truly was a light in a dark world.

I really enjoyed getting to know Lorraine. Her charactor was great, her laugh contagious, and her courage and stamana amazing. I loved having a friend with so much faith. We both took Christ Life at the same time, and I'm really thankful for the time and friendship I was blessed to have with her.

My deepest sympathies to Lorraine's family. She and I worked on different missions things together at JEFC. She had a servant's heart ... and a great smile. She will be missed.

Lorraine touched my life dearly and made me see Jesus afresh every time I was with her! She was a precious woman of God and her faith in our Lord was tremendous! We loved her and she will be missed until we meet again in Heaven! I know she is singing with the angels rejoicing! We were so blessed to have known Lorraine!

Sorry to hear about Lorraines passing. She was such a sweet lady. Guess you won't be needing those new windows after all Lorraine. No more drafts for you for you are secure and warm in the arms of Jesus.

I was privileged to know Lorraine through our volunteering at AGAPE Pregnancy Center. She was a beautiful woman of God, and now she is home in heaven with her Savior, Jesus! Her desire was that everyone would know Him as their Savior, too.
