    We shared a table with Lorene at the Lutheran Home assisted living for the last several years. In the last few months we watched her struggle to communicate and finally had to be moved into skilled nursing. We thought she was a sweet lady and we are sorry we didn’t get to meet you and express our feelings. We are sorry you were not able to spend more time with her. We enjoyed getting to know her. She will be missed.
