To the entire and extended Addeo family:
You are all in our hearts and prayers. Loretta was one of the kindest, gentlest and most beautiful people we have ever known. She looked out for me when I first got hired with FLFD and her sage advice and kindness will never be forgotten. Loretta and Tony were friends with Bob and Betty MacNeil and Betty was telling me how much fun she was to be with. She will be remembered fondly by so many people. Rest in peace, Loretta. Love, Ann & Bruce MacNeil

Sue and Neal you are in our thoughts and prayers. Your Mom was truly blessed to have you both caring for her. She knew how much love you had for her and gave you the greatest gift on the day she had clarity and told you how beautiful you are and how much she loves you. May that memory ever sustain you. With much love, Jo
