“My dear friend Lorraine Warren has passed,” Farmiga wrote on Instagram in a post accompanied by photographs of the two women together. “From my deep feeling of sorrow, a deep feeling of gratitude emerges. I was so blessed to have known her and am honored to portray her.”
Farmiga continued, “She lived her life in grace and cheerfulness. She wore a helmet of salvation, she dawned her sword of compassion, and took a shield of faith. Righteousness was her breastplate, and she has touched my life so.
