I first met Lorraine Marsailes Smuda when I graduated from Jones Commercial High School, Class '74, as an intern at the Department of Water. She was my first supervisor, Steno Pool. She was wonderful to work for and I shall always remember her kindness and thoughtfulness.
My sincerest condolences to her family.

With Deepest Sympathy,
Shermaine C. Sewell-Miles

I have so many wonderful memories of many "parties" with Lorraine and her cherished family. I had very little family of my own and Lorraine always made me feel like a part of hers. She was as kind, wise and generous to me as to her family. A beautiful, elegant and loving lady who walked with dignity and great loyalty for her family, church and neighborhood. She had one of the most beautiful weddings my mother and I ever attended and I remember it vividly. Rest in peace dear Lorraine. Yours was a life well lived.

Please accept my most sincere sympathy for the death of your loved one. We can find comfort in the word of God because it assures us that "there is going to be a resurrection" (Acts 24:15). God promises to give life back to millions of people who have died, and he desires to do so very soon.
A servant of God from the past, Job, asked him: “If a man dies, can he live again? I will wait all the days of my compulsory service (sleep in death) until my relief comes.
You (Jehovah) will call, and I (Job) will answer you. You will long for the work of your hands” (Job 14:14, 15). God is longing to give life back to those who have died.
Perhaps these words do not calm your pain but reflecting on the divine promises found in the Bible will give you the hope and strength to keep going until all of God’s promises are fulfilled. May these words bring you and your family much comfort from Jehovah, the God of all comfort (2 Corinthians 1: 3, 4).
