I met Loreto when I was in my early 20s.
I worked with her at the Texas State Comptroller’s office.
She was such a great role model for me.
She always talked about her daughter’s and treated me like her daughter.
I have thought about her many times throughout my life.
Just wanted you to know after all this time she is important to me.

I had the great pleasure of living across the street (Speedway) from Loreto, Renato, and their precious beautiful daughters Lorena and Leilani. I have very fond memories of spending time with them all, especially Loreto, a warm, kind, beautiful lady inside and out. Very very sad to hear the news.
