Loretta enjoyed the sights and the people in Hot Springs and had many friends who all loved her. Most would say she was quite the character and had the voice of an angel.  

Her laugh was contagious, her touch was warm and gentle.  No matter what she went through or where she was, she always kept a smile on her face.  

Loretta loved country music, especially Johnny Cash and Loretta Lynn, and she also loved cartoons and Shrek.

Her son Donovan says, “I love that she was the most loving mom anyone could ever have and the most caring.” -I love you mom, love your son, Donovan.

Her daughter Lisa says, “Just being in her presence lets you know that no matter what everything is going to be okay and hearing her voice on the phone leaves a smile on our faces.  Thanks for blessing all of us kids with your warm loving heart.”  -I love you mom, love your baby Lisa.

Her son Donald would say, “She’s my only mom.  No one else like her.” – I love you mom, love your son, Donald.
