We are so sorry to hear of the loss of Aunt Lorraine. We have fond memories of the many visits with her and the family while we were still in Michigan. Our deepest condolences to all of the family. She lived a long and full life.

I am so sorry to hear about the loss of Mrs. Boike. She was like a second mother to me while I was growing up in Mississippi. I have the best memories of her kindness and love for me. I’m quite sure Laurie and I probably drove her crazy as teenagers, but she always welcomed me into her home and made me feel like a part of the family. I am praying for all of you, and I am sure she had quite an amazing reunion with Mr. Boike! Love you all!

My children and I are very sad to hear of Aunt Lorraine's passing. She was always hospitable and welcoming to everyone, and we will always remember the wonderful family gatherings in her home. She was an example of Christian love. She loved the Lord and lived her faith. You are all in our prayers.

Lorraine Boike was a kind, loving person who’s touch reaches further than family. We were very blessed to have her - and, the Boike family - in our lives.
