  16. We are sorry to hear about the loss of your mother. I am sorry we were not able to attend the funeral, but we didn’t hear about it until just the other day. My dad sent us the obituary. She lived quite an amazing life. I know you must have been very proud to have her as your mother. May God bless you and your family.

  17. I was very fortunate and blessed to have this wonderful woman brought into my life experience through family ties. Over the years her kindness and generosity was much appreciated by someone who did not have any living grandparents left. With such a loving thoughtful way, Lorine always took the time to give of herself for her family. Her strength and conviction of character is clearly seen in her own children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren. Many tender moments have been shared, and her memory will live on through her family and friends. She will be always be loved and truly missed.

  18. Lesley (Praesel) Hollenberg

    We love you Grandma! Thank you for loving us and being such a wonderful example.

    Dear Praesel Family,
    I will remember your Mother’s precious smile as I go back through years past. Keep your memories of her safely tucked away in your heart so that from time to time when you are feeling sad from her absence here on this earth, you can immediately find one to make you smile and feel warm and cozy inside! Mothers are indeed special. The legacy they shared with us is now ours to share with our children. Hold close with each other and never forget the love of family that she instilled in each of you.
    May God Bless you and keep you,
    Mikie Greenwood Taylor
