Dear Maureen, Lori, Kathy and Family, Please accept our family’s deepest sympathy on the passing of your beloved mother. Loretta loved each member of her family deeply and always enjoyed filling me in on family news when we spoke. She made me feel like part of the family with her welcoming smile and greeting. Loretta was a wonderful mother, homemaker and cook with the best recipes especially her stuffed meatloaf and lasagne. Knowing that she has been been reunited with your father and your brother provides solace. May God bring you comfort in the coming months and your may hearts hold all the great memories close.

With Deepest Sympathy, Love and Friendship,

Lisa and Ron Fink

Dear Lori, Kathy, Maureen and Family,

We are so sorry to receive the news of the passing of your Mother. She was a wonderful person and along with your Father loved all of you very much. We have a long history since 1965 meeting at our first job out of high school working for good old Mr. Murphy. Your parents always welcomed me to their home and my parents loved having you at ours. Even living far away from each other, I am glad our friendship still continues. We will keep you in our prayers and pray God will give you the strength to get through this difficult time.

Our Deepest Sympathy and Love,

Terry and Bill Bonura

Dear Lori, Kathleen and Maureen and family,

I was so sorry to hear about the recent passing of your mom. Aunt Loretta was a great lady. My mom always enjoyed talking with her on the phone. She was also delighted to spend time with her a few years back. She, Edward, Leo and Jeannie visited my mom and they all went to lunch. It was so nice to see the 5 remaining siblings together. May you find comfort in your wonderful memories. I know Aunt Loretta is at peace with your dad.


Your cousin Michaela
