    As I sit here you, are gathered at Glenmore Temple with family and friends, celebrating the life of Lorraine. She was not only a loving wife, mother and grandmother but an amazing friend. I am already missing her and our talks together. “Others” must have been her theme for life as whenever I called to ask how she was doing, immediately she wanted to know how things were with us and our family. Only eternity will tell how many lives she touched!
    Love & Prayers to you Doug, Carolyn, Graham and family!!!
