I am so sorry to hear of your family’s loss. I know you all will miss her dearly. May God give you much comfort and strength during the days and months ahead. With care,Sue Nan Wheeler
Aunt Loretta was one of the best women I have had the pleasure of knowing. Her life was riddled with heartache, but she just kept pressing through and loving people in the middle of it all. She will always hold a special place in my heart. She recklessly loved her family through good times and times that were indescribably hard. She also loved Conway Twitty and Elvis Presley. Most important, she loved Jesus, her Savior. There is absolutely NOTHING negative that comes to mind when I think of my aunt Loretta. She was a one of a kind gem of a lady. I am so grateful for the hope that I hold in my heart that we will be together in Heaven. I love you and will miss you, aunt Loretta. See you soon!
