5 Condolences for “Lorraine Grove”

  1. David Draper

    Phil, I am sorry for the loss of your mother and thinking of you.

  2. Marian Lungren and Diane Carter

    Phil, I’m so sorry for the loss of your mother…she was a very special woman and will be greatly missed by my mother and myself. We loved your mother when she was my dad’s secretary and got to love her even more when we reconnected with her at Mulberry. I saw her a week ago and told her we loved her, didn’t know that would be the last time we would see her..she reached out and held my hand as she always did. My mother has lost a very dear friend and bingo partner…she truly is an angel.

    Sincere sympathy to all the Grove Family–esp. to Dick and Helen and their family. I was a member of Tau Phi Lambda Sorority and remember Lorraine and the older girls. I still have the nice tablecloth that Lorraine, Izzie Rynearson and Marge Hurless gave Bill and I for our wedding present 46 years ago.
