I have many fond memories of Lorraine, from her wonderful divinity candy, the talks we had together at her kitchen table when I was a little girl growing up on the same block she lived on, to the times we sat together at Mikkelson Manor with my Mother-inlaw, Bernice Muller having coffee and a cookie. She always greeted me with the biggest smile and hug to follow. She will be missed indeed, but it will be wonderful to see her in Heaven someday, where I'm sure she will be greeting me with the same big smile and loving hug she had for everyone. Love to you all.
