"Our deepest sympathy on your loss. We met John & Lorraine at Twin Lakes near Bartle Lake, MN. They were an amazing couple. We visited them at their home, also in FL, and they came to SD for our 25th anniversary. Thoughts and prayers."

"Sorry for your loss. It was an honor and privilege to know Lorraine and John. I\'m one of the cook\'s at Red oak Memory Care. Lorraines\'s pies must have been good John would ask me if I would like for Lorraine to help me and that she made the best pies around. I miss them both dearly."
