Aunt Lorraine was a wonderful woman inside and out. Carla always admired her quilts, she would have loved to have one. I remember all the wonderful family visits and good times we had when I was growing up. She will truly be missed!

There are no special words to find that would match how special a woman Lorraine was. From my very earliest memories, Lorraine has been there. With "sisters marrying brothers," we were privileged to have had Kenny, Lorraine, and my "double cousin, Joe," a part of EVERY family celebration, no matter what side we visited! To have had Lorraine warmly open her home to Mom, during her last year of life, made a special lady that much more special! And, when visiting Mom (at Lorraine's), she always said "I get a bonus visit, too!" To watch Mom and Lorraine interact, as sisters, roommates, and, mostly, as best friends, truly warmed my soul! It brought a quiet comfort to my heart to watch these two ladies love, care, and watch over each other! This past year has been difficult, and yet amazing! It was amazing to watch Lorraine not only grieve for her sister's loss, but to also find herself again! Mom, an avid quilter, had 1 quilt square yet to finish on a 36 square quilt. Lorraine, having not quilted for many years, jumped in and re-invented herself. She not only finished the final square, but the entire quilt!!! Therapeutic for her, and an awesome gift to us all. Lorraine was then given a quilt kit as a Christmas Gift last year (one she had fallen in love with when at a quilt shop with Brenda). To see the look in her eyes and the love in her face, to hear her squeals of Joy when she opened that gift ... PRICELESS! She expertly completed that quilt, and it protected and covered Lorraine in her final days! Aunt Lorraine was a woman I could both laugh and cry with (within a matter of moments). A beautiful lady I would have gone through Hell and High Water for. And, mostly, Lorraine is a friend I will miss FOREVER! I LOVE YOU MORE!!!
