Many happy memories of Lorraine continue to comfort you. But when sadness comes, may these promises from Jehovah God help you to endure. Jehovah is close to the brokenhearted, and saves those who are crushed in spirit. And he will wipe away the tears from all faces. Psalms 34:18; Isaiah 25:8 NWT. There will be a wonderful future when pain and illness will be gone forever from the earth. No resident will say: " I am sick." Isaiah 33:24 NWT. Families will enjoy life forever! Peace be with you.

I got to know your Mom when I lived next door in Afton. She was always a sweet lady to me. She looked so beautiful in the wedding photo posted on FB. Losing a parent is so difficult. I'm sorry for your loss.

May blessings be bestowed on the entire Sheeky family and may the memory of Lorraine live in your hearts for eternity. Although I did not know Lorraine personally, I was blessed to have the opportunity to get to know her son Steven through a working relationship several years ago. They say that many children are a reflection of their parents, and if this is true about Steven then Lorraine must have been an amazing person. May all of the members of the Sheeky family know that those that are in heaven can feel all of the love that you carry in your hearts and some day when it is your time to finally go home, your loved ones will be greet you with open arms- God Bless
