Condolences left for Lorraine F. Riley:

    Heather and family,
    Many people touch our lives and are long remembered for their smile, their joy, their spirit. Such a lady was Grandma Bing. Her zest for life was an inspiration; her love for you unparalleled. In time the pain will ease but the smile her name brings to your faces never will leave you.
