My condolences to the Wood family. I was one of the nurses that overlooked her care since this past August. She was a kind, loving woman and very patient to us Healthcare workers! I will deeply miss her morning smile when coming into her room at 7 am meds pass. God Bless you Lorraine, and R.I.P my friend.

My Aunt Sis (as we knew her) knew her way around the kitchen. As her nephew, and a young boy, I have vivid memories of being in my grandmothers kitchen for the cooking that led up to our families thanksgiving and Christmas meals. She was always in the middle of it all. She was definitely a part of my own inspiration to make my own food from scratch.

My deepest condolences to my cousins. My the passing of your mama bring you peace.
