Leatrice Lorraine was a very special lady. she was one of my mom's best friends. Leatrice and George stood up for my mom and dad when they were married at the Baptist parsonage. Mom loved her so much she named me after her. ( Lorraine ) My thoughts and prayers are with all of you during this difficult time.
