    My sincere condolences to Brandice and her family. Your mother was so proud of you. Brandice and baby Mathew were shining parts of her life that brought her simple joy! I will never forget the love she showed to my girls either. Aunti Rain was a very important part of my twins young lives and I always saw the happiness in Loraine when she came over to visit. My prayers are with you in hopes that Loraine has finally found peace.
