My deepest sympathy on the loss of your Mother. I always enjoyed visiting with her. I so remember the trip where Clarian and I stayed with Lorene. We had a great time visiting and going out to eat. I am glad that I stopped to see her in May 2014 when I was in North Dakota. She was doing so well at that time. I had planned to see her when I am there the end of July. I will miss that visit.

Lorene was a dear friend of mine when I served the churches in Milton and Nekoma more than 20 years ago. My rain poncho has actually been to Norway when I haven't because Lorene borrowed it for a trip. She was a sweatheart. You are in my thoughts and prayers.
