Lorne was always such a good natured and positive person. I had the pleasure to work with him for a brief period of time, and cherished his integrity and positive attitude. So very sorry for your loss.

Suzie, Abby and Derek we are so sorry for your loss. Although we only knew Lorne through school or dance events, it was always nice to chat with both of you. There are no word to ease your pain. Cherish the memories you have and let them guide you through these difficult times ahead. You are in our thoughts and prayers.

On behalf of all the staff in the Brandon & Boissevain offices of Andrew Agencies - our deepest sympathy to Lorne's family. We often saw Lorne in our Brandon office - some days with a quick hello; other days stopping for a chat. We will miss you Lorne - rest in peace.

So many good memories with Lorne. He has been my friend for over 40 years and although we kind of lost touch over the years, I always cherished our friendship. Growing up we hung out allot. We took Tae Kwon Do together, fenced, played dungeons and dragons, graduated high school together. At one point we both lived in Calgary and were even each other's best man. I thought Lorne was one of the most cool people. He was so easy going, nothing seemed to get to him and he always had that "Lorne" grin. Everything he did, he did well, displaying brilliance and intelligence in all things. I find myself going through pictures and video of Lorne and smiling at all the fun times we had together. Nothing can take that away and I know his family and friends will be running a best of Lorne playlist in their minds over the coming days. My heartfelt sympathy for all connected to this great man, especially his family.
