Sometime in 1988, after moving from Minnesota to Camden Maine, my beloved wife Pam (passed unexpectedly 12/12/170) had the good fortune to meet Rena and together, they forged a kindred, caring relationship that would continue for years. You always knew when the two were together from the continuous laughter and giggles that overwhelmed any gathering. We all grew pleasantly familiar with Rena’s escalating response to awe and excitement as, from her heart, she would utter in amazement, “OMG.” Rena very much enjoyed sharing with others and we would frequently be invited to join many a celebration of her making at the Samosette in Rockport, also the site of her beautiful home in the Samosette Village. I clearly remember the table setting with enough silverware aside each plate to announce some very special culinary delight was about to appear. Years later, we introduced Rena to our next door neighbor in Pleasant Ridge, Charles Culpepper who was most likely the love of Rena’s life. Their first meeting was a blind date that Pam and I arranged and accompanied. WE went to a beautiful, quaint, shore side lobster shack and shortly after being seated, Charlie experienced a full blown panic attack which abruptly ended the magic moment (I immediately at his demand, drove him home) but as you know, and fate would have, Charlie rose to the occasion and shortly after, they were happily married - unfortunately for to short a time. Shortly after, I accompanied Rena on a road trip, bringing her classy blue topped - white Cadillac from Rockport to her home. I flew back the next day but not before she had me look through some of Charlie’s belongings. My favorites were his Tuxedo, leather flight jacket and a gray cable knit sweater with his WW II meritorious ribbon monogram. The leather jacket is currently with a most talented seamstress, also a friend and undergoing replacement of its well worn lining. The sweater comes out on special occasions and I purposely waited for this day to add this condolence because in a short while on Chebeague Island, I will be wearing the tux my good friend Charlie wore at his wedding to Rena at my wedding. I have no doubt that Pam, Rena + Charlie, 3 loved and dear friends, will be close to me today. Thanks for the wonderful memories and see you all later...

I will always remember the positive and encouraging words from Aunt Lorina. Aunt Lorina was a lively, energetic person who would help you any way she could, and she would always encourage you to do your best! I know she will be celebrating in Heaven with Dad!

Lorina was truly someone that made a lasting impression, a very lively vivacious lady.
We always enjoyed being in her presence. I am sure she is enjoying many reunions with loved ones!!

Ma tante Lorina, bonne chance à ton retour. Vous avez été profondément béni dans la vie, que ceux qui vous ont connus et qui ont bénéficié de votre bonne volonté soient aussi bénis. Merci pour tout ce que vous avez fait pour votre famille.

I truly thought you would live forever. Your energy and drive were unmatched. You were the true matriarch of our family and will be truly missed. I have no doubt when you arrived in heaven you received the biggest hug from my father- Roy.
We have so many fond memories, of time spent with you - wish there could have been more.
In God we trust,
Richard and family
