We are so sorry to hear of Loretta's passing. Loretta and I worked together many years ago in the office at Herbers Supply, she was a dear lady and became a great friend and confident during our time together. Actually she was the one who taught me the "nutritional values" and the pure joys of a Milky Way candy bars and coffee for breakfast! ( well, actually morning coffee break) We had many many laughs together, her laugh will always be remembered as well as her beautiful smile. I pray you have a safe journey into the next chapter of your story and back into the arms of the man you loved for so many years. Rest in peace my dear friend, till we meet again may Gods open arms hold you close and comfort your loved ones through this difficult time. Please know our thoughts and prayers are with each of you today and in the weeks and months that lay ahead.
Peggy and Rocky Robinson
