So sorry to hear of Loretta's passing. I will never forget the kindness she showed me, nor the words of wisdom she shared over the years. She will be sadly missed by all who knew her, especially her family. Thinking of you all at this sad time x

Although we never met you in person Loretta, you became a close friend through social media.
Someone who was always there for advice and always caring for our health especially Denise became unwell last year....you messaged me regularly to see how Denise was doing during her chemotherapy...not because you had to...but because you wanted to...you were a special person and we will miss your regular messages and the laughs we used to have...
May you rest in peace Loretta.....we will never forget you and will be thinking of you, especially when we are in Santa Ponsa....that's for sure....... Denise & John
