Lorrie, I remember when your mom would come to Bel Air and be a “teacher” with us. She was a sweet, friendly lady and seemed to have a smile for everyone. I admired her for coming to help the children. She will always be a wonderful lady in my memory who I love. And I love you and Mollie!

Dear Lorrie and Mollee, I am so sorry for the loss of your mom and grandma. She loved you both so much. She was so proud of you both. Living next door as you did created an extra special close bond. Ordinary day to day times shared, not just the holidays, make for a far closer relationship but also a deeper loss when they are gone. I love you both.
