Loretta, you were my daughter Elise Cormier’s Grade 1 teacher. We remember you fondly as a very caring and dedicated teacher. Both Sarina and Elise were inspired by Chris as they attended Paul Dwyer a few years back. We all want to express how sad we are at the loss of your wonderful husband and children, I was very moved by your and Sam’s words. How brave and loving of you to express your deep and lasting love for your family.

Loretta, my heart is broken for you and for your family. I know firsthand the devastation that follows an act of pure, senseless violence and with this knowledge my heart absolutely cries out to God for your comfort now and in the days and years to come. Grief has taught me many things, shaping my life in ways both good and bad. But what has always been constant, reliable and true is that God is faithful. May He comfort you Loretta and hold you and your son in His righteous right hand. ❤️
