Lorraine was a very special christian Lady. We have know the Nelson family for over 50 years. Lorraine was my young adult Sunday school  teacher so many years ago. We were so happy to be reconnected with them a short time ago as they moved to our area. I know she is walking along side our Lord in heaven as she always did here on earth. No more pain and sickness as she is now in her forever home. Great memories will always be in our hearts.  Love to the family.
