HomesickAlien Posted April 24, 2022 Share Posted April 24, 2022 My first interaction with Lorraine was in late 2013, in a now somewhat infamous thread that shall remain nameless (those were fun times). She was very witty, and at times quite blunt, a quality that I know some here found offensive, but I very much admired. Then, in late 2016, around the time her husband had his first stroke, my own mother suddenly fell very ill, passing away in a nursing home almost a year later. Lorraine exchanged many private messages with me over those months, always offering words of comfort and advice, despite having to deal with the illness of her husband. There were lighter moments in those messages as well. We talked about our cats -we both had white cats at the time. She had Lily and I had Snowball. She also told me to make sure that I was eating enough, saying that if I didn't keep up my strength I'd be in no condition to help anyone else! Lorraine was a special member of this forum, and I can only hope that she's finally found some much-deserved peace and rest. 13 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
