My heartfelt condolences to you all. Lorna, you will be missed. I have many fond memories of you battling anyone who dared to interfere in any injustices, especially regarding our most innocent, children. You always seen right through them and you were so no nonsense and very righteous which is one of the qualities that I respected about you. I will miss your passion in the political arena, and most of all, you were a dear friend. God bless you.
