    Dear Brandons, When I read Lorena's obituary out loud to my Dad, Dr. Dan, he had an immediate reaction. His memory is mostly gone these days but he clearly remembered Lorena and what an exceptional woman she was. He said that whatever she made up her mind to do, she would just do it. He said that she was a "really fine person" and remembers her gifting his hunting friends with watermelons when they visited from West Virginia and stayed at his little cabin down on Cedar Creek, near her farm.(This was about 45 years ago!) It delighted them,was a greatly enjoyed gift that obviously left a lasting impression. Dr. Dan sends his condolences to your entire family at the loss of such a special lady. With warmest regards and sympathy, Janie Baugh
