  1. Lorene was my Aunt, a solid Christian woman, whom I love very much. Whenever I needed prayers to be said, I could always count on her to pray with me / and for me. She was extremely knowledable in the Bible, and I always love listening to her quote the bible to me. She will be missed very much – but my hope is that I can live half as well as she did and will see her again in heaven. Love Always Jan Leslie
