    I loved Mrs. Macke, she was a loving, giving person. She was quick to share and laugh. She was a big support to our family. She will be sorely missed by those who she touched with her love.

    Having grown-up next door and having been a friend in youth with Theresa Diane, I have many many fond memories of Lorrain. She was a sweet and caring woman.
