From Kerry Vanlouwe, friend

Dear Ann M. and family,
I am so very sorry to hear about the loss of your beloved family member Lorne. Ann and I worked together for several wonderful years and during that time I have gotten to know your entire family quite well. I always enjoyed the stories and events regarding your family that Ann and I would talk about over hundreds of coffee breaks over the years. Through her words it was so evident that she cared for,adored and loved each and every member of her family so very much. I feel I know all of you if only through words but words can speak volumes even for those people you've never had the pleasure of meeting. I wish I could be with you in celebrating the life of Lorne but I want you to know that my thoughts and prayers are with you today. Sincerest regards to all of you.
