God saw you getting tired and a cure was not to be,
He put his arms around you and whispered "come with me."
With tearful eyes we watched you and saw you pass away
Although we loved you dearly, we could not make you stay.
A golden heart stopped beating, loving hands at rest.
God broke our hearts to prove to us, He only takes the best!
Lorraine is survived by her five children and four step-children; Steve (Kathy) Verboomen, Appleton; Victoria (Bruce) Mertens, Crivitz; Pete (Cindy) Stengl, Pulaski; Mike (special friend, Helen) Verboomen, Green Bay; Lori (Tim) Margis, Crivitz; stepson Jesse (Barb) Rugg, Wausaukee; 13 grandchildren; and eight great-grandchildren.
