    Lorraine and Neil were the best neighbours a person could ever ask for in Sexsmith. It was always hidi ho Neighbor or neighbouret over the fence. We even had to add a gate in between the property so Baily and Trixie could play together. We had lots of good laughs together and really missed them when they moved into GP. No matter what they always made us feel like family. Lorraine you will be greatly missed as Neil has been over the years. Now you are both back together watching over everyone from above love you lots Condolences to all the family. You are all in my heart and prayers. RIP Lorraine ❤️❤️❤️❤️ Darla Provencal
