I was privileged to have Loretta as my next door neighbor for the past seven years, and throughout that time she was unfailingly warm and kind to me. She was a lovely lady, and I will miss her greatly.

My deepest sympathy to our family. Loretta felt more like a sister and sometimes a mom instead of my cousin. She was a beautiful, kind and loving person. Those in her life that were lucky enough to know her, were so blessed. I will miss her and I will miss our conversations. I love you. Always in my heart. R.I.P my dear cousin.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.
