Dear Brad and Family, My heart goes out to all of you in the loss of your beloved wife and mother. Lorenda exuded "good vibes"...even though I only met her a handful of times at family reunions, yet I always remembered her very fondly. I will always treasure the "Thank You" letter she sent after I shipped her the Fostoria candeholders in 2015 that had belonged to her mother. (I'll never know why I had them, when Lorenda should've always had them!) If only I had sent them sooner, she could have enjoyed them longer! I can't imagine how much you miss her. May God bring comfort to all of you! ~ Lenora Thompson (Lorenda's first-cousin-once-removed)

Brad & family, My deepest sympathy for the loss of your wife/mother/grandmother & beautiful soul. My heart is heavy. She truly was a fighter - no doubt her love for her family kept her fighting, & enduring. May God\'s peace & the prayers of many some how ease the pain from your loss.

We never truly lose anyone in life ~ their voice, their laughter, their influence, their likes and dislikes, their tendencies and idiocincrisies', their talents and giftings ~ stay with us forever, especially when we see those different strengths and character in each family member. At some point sometimes we wish the memories would fade away because the pain of the reality of the person not being there is so strong and so painful. Hardest will be for Brad . . . My prayer for all of you is that as we remember Rennie and all the good she brought into your lives that God's grace will somehow use the memories for healing and strength. Strength Rennie would want her life and character to give you.
