When I read Lorraine’s story it made me think of my own mother who died at the same age a couple years ago. We lived in Minnesota and ended up in Oregon too. My mother was one of 10 children so they both came from large families. When ones live that long there is more to be lost than when younger. What wisdom and experiences she must have shared with you, her family. We are grateful to God that she will live again at the resurrection where she will be reunited and welcomed into the loving arms of her family and friends here on earth. A time when death will be no more. Revelation 21:3,4 Psalm 37:10,11.
