    What wonderful memories I have of Lorraine. The earliest was being in her wedding as one of the flower girls (along with my sister, Sharyn, and Jim Loeffler as ring bearer). So many fun get togethers with all of the cousins. I am so thankful for precious memories. May God grant all of you strength through this very difficult time. Love to all.
