I'm so sorry to hear that Loretta passed. She was a wonderful wife, mother, and friend. I worked with her at Our Town many years ago. She'll be sorely missed by friends and family...

Loretta was a wonderfull part of village life. Having been at the diner through its various reincarnations over the years, she was always a smiling, warm welcome in the mornings. If you had the opportunity to know her, you knew how important her family was. Our sincerest sympathies to her family. May you be comforted by the memories of her life, and love for you. We will miss her greatly. Michael & Larry
