I am shocked and broken hearted to hear about Loretta's passing. She was a member of Ladies First in Marble Falls, where I am employed. All of our members are devastated. Laretta lit up the room when she came in. She was always in good spirits and had a great sense of humor. She liked to talk about how she went to the Casino and was ready to go again! She was very proud of her sons and always mentioned them in conversation. We will all miss her, dearly!

Laretta was one of the strongest, sweetest persons and just a beautiful woman inside and out. I only had the privilege to share some quiet talks and visits with her at Sharons bedside before Sharon moved to Heaven. I was so amazed how she was comforting and encouraging me while having to process this life changing moment and great loss. She just amazed me. My heart is broken at her loss and for your loss. I know she will be missed so much by so many. But I know she’s watching over you all and loving you always and forever. God rest her sweet soul and praying peace and comfort over yours now and in the days to come. Love you!

I have known this beautiful soul most of my life, she was always so good and sweet to me, always had a laugh and a smile for everyone. I won’t ever forget she would always tell me, “Darrell should have married you”, this meant so much to me that, she thought so well of me, I sure will miss seeing her smile and hearing her kind words. Ms Laretta, flying with her Angels, her husband and children gone before her. My most sincere condolences to her family especially Boo, Darrell and Carlos, God bless you all and know she is still watching over her boys.

We called her Maxwell here at Bertram Nursing Home. She worked here for 34 years. She was a go getter, and took us all under her wing. If you worked a graveyard shift, your more than likely worked with Maxwell. There was always coffee to drink (she would bring her own stash) and she loved to feed us whatever she brought for her lunch. I personally loved working with her because when there were silent moments in the night, we had time to chit chat about life, kids, families. Hearing the news that she passed away has been hard for all of us who had the privilege to know her and work with her. Rest in peace, Maxwell. I can still hear your voice and laugh.
