Lorraine here to comment (to the best of her knowledge) this is the first time an obituary has been posted on her blog. Putting a face on the horrible tornado tragedy.

The exact “cousin” connection is unknown (at 3:00 AM) but “detective Lorraine” will continue the search.

4:00 AM and the relationship to her husband established. There are enough familiar surnames, I suspect Rita is a blood cousin, too.
