  34. I am so sorry to see this today. Even though I knew one day it would be here, I am still so very sad to know she is gone. I never met Lorraine in person, rather, I knew her as a faraway friend who I visit virtually anytime. She was an anchor here in this blogworld, welcoming me when I was just beginning. I will pray for her, but also for the beloved family she left behind when she gathered her wings and her heavenly reward. Thank you so much for allowing us to share in her life and in her death, as well as in your grief. I will come back here and visit often, for I know Lorraine has still so much to teach.
