I will always remember the many holidays we celebrated with family at Aunt Loretta's and Uncle Nolan's house. Family was so important to her, and now she is reunited with with her brothers, sister, and others!

So sorry for your loss. Loretta was a special lady. I always admired her and Charlie really liked Nolan. Our generation is slowly passing on. May we all meet in Heaven.
