      My condolences Ann. When I Joined St. Mary’s School of Nursing in the 60’s Lorraine befriended me being from GF – inviting me over to her apt for meals etc. I always remember her kindness to me. Now she is resting in peace.

    I always remember Lorraine as so pretty and vibrant. As young kids we’d always run to her and she’d treat us so well, usually with treats from from dads canteen at the K if C…..wonderful memories. Thank God she is finally at peace. My sincere condolences to you and your girls, Ann.

    To Ann and the girls: First time I had met Lorraine, Bob and I were going on our honeymoon and stopped in Montreal. She was full of life and young hearted. She had a bird that would lay eggs often. It was amazing. That bird gave her joy.
    God bless you all during this difficult time and find peace knowing her suffering is now over. Love from Bob and Bev
