Dear Family,
I have to say what a lovely lady MS Lorena was and so sweet & caring. She & my mother Betsy Thompson worked together at Baxter for years and my mom thought so much of her. Guess they are in heaven together and they say "GOD" always takes the good ones first. I know we all look forward till the day we join our loved ones in heaven.
May God comfort you & bless you & make HIS light shine upon you & give you peace.
All my love,
