It is with great sadness that I heard about Lorraine's passing. Lorraine was a care giver for my Aunt Mary and Uncle Ernie Braun. Lorraine was more like one of the family. We dearly loved her. She certainly earned her wings here on earth. The world has suffered a loss the day Lorraine passed. My condolences are extended to all of the family members that Lorraine has touched. May God bring you all comfort and peace and may Lorraine find her eternal happiness as she passes through the gates of heaven and is once again reunited with those she helped and loved.
