    We are still in shock. She was the hub of your family and to me an admired cousin. I had been hoping to visit her some time soon .
    Of course it is hard on the young people and her dearly loved grandkids and we are holding Bob in our hearts as he has lost a companion and wife.

    Carol and Art Nadelle
    Dear Bob:  Art & I were shocked and very saddened to hear the news of Lorraine's passing.  I have many wonderful memories of Lorraine from my days at Elverston - the church, chatting after the services, the choir and of course the YPU group.  Our family knew the Brown family so well.  They were all wonderful people!  Lorraine sang at our wedding. She was always so happy and fun to be with.  When I was a teenager I went with Lorraine and a couple of other girls to Buffalo.  We flew there and had a FUN time. That was my first time on an airplane - a real adventure. 
    
    Please accept our heartfelt sympathy.  We will keep you and your family in our prayers. - with kindest regards from us both - Carol
