Our mother, Lorraine, was a strong Christian woman, who loved reading her bible and watching her Christian programs on television. Walking through-out her house you never knew when you would open a draw or cupboard and find a Bible verse. Maybe one she felt was important to remember, or lift her spirits throughout the day, or remind her of what was really important in life.

Lorraine was a talented seamstress, making many of her children’s clothes in her younger years. As she grew older and her eyesight wasn’t as strong, Lorraine traded in her sewing machine for books and a reader, always loving a good murder mystery.
