Loretta was a resident at primrose where I was her nurse. She was a beautiful strong woman. She loved her late husband and missed him terribly. She was deeply loved at primrose and all the employees past and present. There where so many nights we would just laugh about the silliest things . She made my work a joy. Sending love and hugs to the family and to the people who loved her. I don't know what Maryjo is going to do with out her.
