I am so very sorry for your loss. Please find comfort in God's sure promise of a resurrection as set forth in the Bible. (Acts 24:15; John 5:28,29) Those who are raised to life will have the prospect of never again being subject to misery, sickness, or death. (Revelation 21:4) I hope that reflecting on these thoughts will give you some relief.

Met Lorraine through my friend Jodi, her daughter. She was always such a kind, friendly person to me. Always listened to stories of my Mom when she suffered a stroke. Lorraine will be missed. Prayers to her family.
