Julie, Barbara & Laurie & FamilyOver the many years the Dominic family has known Lorraine, we have always loved her for her sweet manner and kindness to our family. As the years passed Mom couldn't go to Eastern Star and church functions and Lorraines visits helped bridge that loss. My Mother, Florence always felt Lorraine was her best friend as she routinely visited and usually brought goodies. If Sue or I were visiting our parents during the Christmas season we hoped we would be there when Lorraine came with her cookies. She always delivered a big beautiful tray. She added so much to our Mother's life, and we loved her for it. She didn't dwell on her own or my Mother's problems but always talked on a positive note. Although I didn't see her often, as we lived in California forty years, I always admired her so much. She really was a wonderful woman!Jean Dominic Brown
