My heart felt condolences to Lynne and Donna on the passing of your mom. Loretta was my great aunt from my father’s side (Norman Salvas). I had the honor and privilege of meeting both Aunt Loretta and Uncle Dick approximately 35 to 37 years ago. Unfortunately, I only met them on 2 different occasions but they were the kindest, sweetest people ever! I felt like I had known them my entire life. I wish we had had more opportunities to get together. May God Bless you both during this difficult time and may Aunt Loretta rest peacefully for eternity!!! Much Love, Nancy Velho

I am privileged and blessed to have met my long lost aunt! I know it was her constant prayers that brought me together with lost and loving family members just two short years ago. Thank you Aunt Loretta. You were loyal, obedient, and unwavering. Rest in the peace of our Lord.

I miss my mother more than words can tell. She was the loveliest, sweetest woman I have ever known--with a heart of gold and deep love for everyone .. I was so privileged that she chose to live the last four years of her life with me. We had so much fun together and somehow I convinced myself that her life would never end. However, wishing and hoping doesn't change God's plan. As my beautiful mom aged, she faced her biggest fears: becoming nearly blind, unable to walk or stand, and finally, unable to talk. I wake up each morning, only to realize that she is truly gone--the house is too quiet and I am so sad. But, then I think what happiness she must feel--being able to see God, hear the Heavenly music, and run with strong and powerful legs through Heaven must be like for her. But knowing that she is much happier now somehow doesn't take away my pain. I know that I will begin each morning thinking of her and wishing somehow, that we were together again. My love for her will never end. I love you, mom--Lynne Marie
