Memories Timeline


  1. So sorry to hear of Loretta's passing. Loretta was my roommate when I lived and worked in Springfield for three years. I will always remember the good times we shared. She was a kind and generous person and she will missed by all who knew her. My condolences to her family and friends.

  2. We were sadden to learn of Loretta's passing. Loretta was one of my roommates for awhile in Springfield in the 60's and I have many fond memories of our time together. She was a sweet person and will be missed. Our prayers and sympathy to her family.

  3. My aunt loved Jesus and her final wish was to go to heaven. She also loved to relax on the couch. There's a couch for you in heaven! Godspeed Loretta, you are in a better place now.

  4. "And I have hope toward God, which hope these men also look forward to, that there is going to be a resurrection of both the righteous and the unrighteous." at Acts 24:15 the Apostle Paul said and wrote these words for our comfort. May they prove to be so for you and your family. While I may not know you personally I have experienced the lost of death. Your neighbor and friend Maddy Hernandez
