    To the Peterson and Cochran Families~
    Lorraine was a wonderful lady. Her smile and kindness always made a trip to the gift shop at the hospital/nursing home worth the extended visit.
    May God bring you all comfort and joy in this time of sadness.

    I’m sorry for your loss. I will miss Lorraine’s smiling face at the Ronnei get togethers. I can see her influence live on by how nice her family is. She will be missed.
    Love, Jeff
