I wish to express my deepest sympathy to Paula and Brian, and my heartfelt condolences to the family and all who knew and loved Loretta. You are all in my thoughts and prayers. May the Dear Lord give you peace and your memories be a comfort for you at this difficult time of loss., It was a privilege getting to know her. I really enjoyed the times I shared with her in prayer and bible studies. She was a wonderful person with a tender
Love and prayers,
