Our family fondly remembers Lorena and Chris. They were best friends with my mom and dad, Abbie and Alfred Streeter starting on Java Street in Akron Ohio. They lived across the street in Annette Drive in Melbourne Florida. My dad, although legally blind, assisted Chris in building out many of the mobile homes and putting in their summer porches. My girls have memories of New Years Eve at the Holiday Inn getting to celebrate with Granny, Pappy and Lorena and Chris. We’ve always corresponded at Christmas and this year our card came back. Sad to see none of these great folks are with us. Lorena was a great friend and a great lady. We remember her fondly.

I am so sorry for your loss; I had only met your mom a few times but knew she had to be a lovely lady. I met her through her daughter, Debbie, who is one of the sweetest Christian women I have ever met in my life. She had to be special to rear such a wonderful daughter. My prayers are with all of you. God Bless You!
