My condolences to the family and friends of Lorraine.. I had the pleasure of knowing her the last 4 years of her life. She was great person,genuine, happy and loved to laugh. It is still a shock for most of us but we know there must of been a greater need. I'll miss her always making crystal light in her water bottle and swearing it was the best. She was a real lady and will be truly missed

My prayers go out to Lorraine's family, friends and loved ones. She will be missed very much at Aetna. Her warmness,her sweet personality and beautiful smile will always be remembered in our hearts. She was truly a joy to know as a co-worker and a wonderful person and I thank God for her being a ray of sunshine in my life for the period of time I've known her. Keep the good times in your hearts and that will keep her with you always.
Lorraine was a delightful ray of Sunshine in the office. She was always warm, friendly, and greeted you with a smile. I enjoyed our casual talks at work about our experiences, her travels, and her love for animals. I found her to be quite interesting. She was always actively participating in our many "pot lucks" at work. She was quite the chef! What I will hold dearest, what impressed me most, was that upon her return from work after some sickness, she seemed more concerned about how I was doing, and my needs! She even gave me a "get well card". She was Jewel and will be sorely missed!
My heart goes out to Lorraine's family. She was a jewel always had a big smile never could tell she when she was having a bad day. Lorraine I will miss your hugs. I know you are now a guardian angel looking over us.
My prayers are with the family, friends and co-workers after loosing such an angel. Ms. Lorraine will be sorely missed, particularly when she would reach out to me on Facebook like a Big Momma. I am saddened that I will not be able to see her friendly smile; however, I take solace in the fact that she will suffer no more. Rest well dear heart Lorraine! May God keep you in perfect peace!!

I am proud to be able to call Lorraine my oldest friend. We became friends in kindegarden and remained friends throughout our lives. Even though our lives took us on very diffferent paths, we never lost our friendship. I will always remember how we laughed together and how we enjoyed our music. She and I spoke over a month ago and it was like we never missed a beat.
I know she is loved and comforted now as well as loving and comforting others.
God bless my friend.
I am heartbroken to hear about Lorraine's passing. My prayers are with the family and it is my hope they know what a special lady Lorraine was. I worked with her for better than 10 years and never heard her say a cross word about anyone. She was truly a witness to His unconditional love and will be greatly missed.
