Wanda and family, I am so sorry to hear of your loss. I know all too well of the pain and sorrow you are going through. They say that time will heal all wounds but, it is time and how you deal with the pain. Keep your loved ones close to your heart and continue moving on and always talk to her every day. My heart and prayers go out to you and your family. God bless.
Your Friend from long ago,
Tam Fox

Aunt Loretta was always smiling. Very loving and gracious to everyone. I received a true blessing each time I visited with her. It was my pleasure to be a part of her family.

My precious Aunt Loretta!! I always thought she only called me "precious, " but of course everyone was her "precious." I know that she truly felt like everyone was precious... What a wonderful women to have as my aunt.
