We are at a loss and it is with a sad heart that I send our sympathies to the family. We will greatly miss her smiling face when we would get to visit her. She always welcomed us with open arms and of coarse wonderful food. Frank will miss her apple and her graciousness. She and Brian always made us feel at home and I am so blessed to have had her as my sister. She cared about all of us and was devoted to family. I am so glad to have spent time with her this passed summer and to have been with her on her birthday in August. I hate that I am so far away and I pray the family will understand why I am not there with you all. Love to everyone and I pray you all will be ok. She is with our Momma, Lona, William, Lemorra and little Catherine. We will met again one day. Love to all . Janice and family

I will miss you so much. My sister Lorene was a wonderful person. You might say she was a very private person. She loved her home and family and devoted herself to caring for them. She took in many stray cats and nursed them back to health. I once told her that Mom named her right. Her full name was Goldie Lorene and I told her that she was Golden. That's how I will remember her, "My Golden sister"
