Our condolences to George and Cheryl and your families. I always enjoyed seeing Lorraine regardless of a family event or at Wheeling Hospital. Sara would come home after volunteering at Wheeling Hospital telling me she talked to her and she was always smiling and kind. She lived a full and good life. God Bless her and each of you.
