    We are so saddened by the passing of Aunt Loretta, but are forever grateful for the time we have gotten to spend with her in the past few weeks. Even though I (Melinda) only got to meet her and visit with her one time, I felt like I had known her my entire life, she was so kind and had some wise advice for me that I will carry and remember forever. Russell loved her so deeply and is so thankful for the time he had with her also, and she will live in our hearts forever. Cody is also thankful he got to know her and will always remember her. You are in our prayers, and we pray God will give you the peace and comfort you need for the days to come. Love, Russell, Melinda, and Cody

    Aunt Loretta was a big part of us girls childhood and very loved by her sister Maggie. Me and Diana just had a talk about this a few weeks ago how crazy mom and Aunt Loretta was about each other I have always thought about her being without her sister. Her and mom were just alike.

    Our prayers are with your family. I know this is so hard, but take comfort in knowing that she suffers no more. I wish I could have visited with her but as you know my husband has cancer and I need to be with him. Keith is in the hospital now. I will pray that God will take each of you in his comforting arms and shield you from the sorrow of loss always. Love to all, Keith and Julia

      My mama would not have wanted you to leave Keith, she only wanted you all to know how much she has always loved you and Barbara and Jim. She told me specifically to tell you all that. My husband has cancer as well, although by God’s grace he is stable at this time. We are praying for Keith every day and we will be fine, thank you for your prayers. I would not have wanted my mama to endure even one more day of pain and suffering. She is so beautiful and has always been ready to go home to her savior. I could not be selfish, as hard as it is, and wish for her to remain here. Love to you as well, I am so sorry for what you are going through. It is so hard to watch a loved one suffer….. Diana and family.

    I dream about my mama nearly every night. She took amazing care of my two small daughters, and was a very loving, talented, and missed so much. Love you my sweet Mama.
