Aunt Loretta will be terribly missed by everyone who knew her.
She has made it to every wedding and party in the family.
One memory is when she would say oh I took a ride today, that meant she went to Revere Beach to Kelly's!
Dad will miss her phone calls.
Now she's with James, Grandma and Grandpa
Your whole family are in our thoughts and prayers.
Love Paula and Armand
