Lorraine was one of my best friends since I was born. No matter what the occasion, she was always there for me in my darkest hours. Every single night we would talk on the phone about whatever came to mind. She made the first 16 years of my life the best they possibly could, and because of her, my life will always be better for having known her. Lorraine was always honest with me, treating me as an adult all the time. Whenever something important was going on in her life she would make sure to tell me about it. She was family, and I will always remember and love her.
