I was so saddened to hear of Lorraine's passing. She was such a special part of Alward School and helped me often during my many years there. May she Rest In Peace.

As a friend of Mr. and Mrs. Andre's son Bob, I spent a lot of time at their home growing up. I remember Mrs. Andre's sweet and kind disposition, and desire to find humor in everyday life. I also remember her genuine interest in others, always finding time to talk and ask how things are going. My condolences to the Andre family, and hope they find solace in knowing that all things are now well with her.
