One Response to “Lorraine Wong 1967-2015”

  • Rev. Pat Simpson says:

    Lorraine spent her days around our church in the University District. On weekdays she would often sit in the chapel, light a candle, and spend time in meditation. Sundays she was part of Emerald City Metropolitan Community Church’s service in the chapel. It was in that room that she fell ill, leading to her death many days later at the hospital. I pray Lorraine knew the arms of God were around her in that quiet place that was her refuge from the street.
