I was fortunate to meet Lorna professionally, but felt a friendship with her and had many interesting visits with her. She was an independant lady, who had a wonderful life travelling, and meeting new people, which she seemed to cherish. I was so surprised to hear of her death and felt sad that I didn’t have more time to get to know her. She will be remembered fondly. Janet
