    This Beautiful and Wonderful woman of God will be missed. Ms. Lorraine attended my wedding almost 20 years ago and I was so thankful. She was funny and so nice to my family (mom - Lulu aka Beverly) all these years. I am so honored to have her as a part of our lives. We love and miss you.

    Robert, I am deeply saddened to learn about the passing of your wife. I did not know her well, but Jackie and I shared a table with you and Loraine during some shipyard functions. We felt that she was a beautiful, positive person and that you two seem to be perfect for each other. We pray that God will give you the strength that you need to get through this difficult time. Please accept our condolences. May God bless you and your family.
