    Dear Ed and LaRonda: So sorry to hear of Loretta’s passing. What a sweet and gentle soul she was. I can still remember the day at the assisted living facility when mom arrived and Loretta was sitting there and she made mom feel so welcome! I thought, “Two classy ladies together!” Heaven has welcomed another beautiful angel home. You have our deepest sympathies and prayers at this time. God be with you and your family.
