    You belong in a boat out at sea
    Sail away, kill off the hours
    You belong somewhere you feel free
    Run away, find you a lover
    Go away somewhere all bright and new
    I have seen no other

    I love that Lorna was a true Free Spirit, connecting myriads of people in many ways, always non-judging and holding true.
    Her social conscience was expressed in many ways.
    The Adventures, well, that's another story! Game, Lorna was game for pretty much...  more

    To me Lorna was so special because everyone she came in contact with was made to feel special.

    The last time we saw Lorna was in August at the Joe Rich. We got together for an outdoor breakfast and visit. After breakfast we drank coffee and talked...  more

    Lorna's passion for the outdoors knew no bounds! Her life was well lived. I was so lucky to share adventures with her. These words make me think of her: "Walk on a rainbow trail, walk on a trail of song. All about you will be beauty. There is a way out...  more
