Lorine was so instrumental in the start up of Emmaus couldn't have happened without her energy, kindness, and willingness to sacrifice for the greater good. She was a truly Christian person. The ministry could not have continued over the years without her. She should be greatly honored for her life of service. Terry and Carol Drake

Know this lady a long time. She was as awesome as her mother was. My thoughts and prayers are with Paul and his family.

Ms. Hewson was more than just my first grade teacher, she was a dear friend. When I was young, she lived 3 doors down from me, so that meant an open invitation to stop by her house any time, right? Well I don't remember her ever turning me away. I would go visit and she would read with me before we could "play" which meant we baked cookies, and cookies, and cookies so much so, she even nicknamed me "Cookie". I loved her dearly. As an adult we continued to be friends. It was then, I realized how important it is to help, love and nurture young kids, as she did me. You will always be special to me, thank you for finding the time. ~Laura
