    I had the pleasure of working with Lorraine years ago at a Skilled Nursing Home in Syracuse where she was a instructor and I a charge nurse. She had such a wonderful way with all the students…..she could tame the wildest and nurture the weakest at the same time. She gave so much to all because she cared so much. RIP Lorraine and hit ’em straight !

    This Is Jimmy Moran, Betty Moran’s son, and my wife Kathy and son, John.
    We always remember how much fun we had with your Mom & Dad and especially a Holiday Party that they asked my to stay for at the Home in Syracuse….a Fantastic Memory !!

    I often hear about Jill & Cecil and about Susie and her perpetual ‘Incredible’ attitude. We wish your Mom all the Best as she enters the Gates of Heaven. We’d welcome your contact at any time if you’d like to call at 847-372-5698
