  1. I am so so sorry everyone. You all know I loved your mama, and she showed me love as well. I will always remember sitting with her at church, and us nudging each other to wake up… I will miss her, but I am sure not as much as all of you….. She was a beautiful woman, who loved her Heavenly Father, and her earthly family more than anything in the world, even the little fur babies. She was so proud of you all. The love of her, and Frank is one of the rarest of all, you just don’t see TRUE LOVE, and dedication, like they had to, and for each other. Beautiful !! This week will be a hard one, and the ones to follow. Rest assured that she is rejoicing with Jesus, and walking those streets of gold. We WILL see her again, shortly, as He promises us… Until we meet again, Loretta….. I love you all….. God Bless, Cami Davis

  2. Please accept my condolences on the passing of your loved one. YOU may draw comfort from the Scripture at Revelation 21:3, 4.

  3. Loretta was always willing to listen when I was discouraged. She never judged me. She loved her family and always had wonderful things to say about each of her children and her grandchildren. She taught me so much. I loved hearing the stories about the Hajny family. We laughed together and we cried together. I tried to be there for her when Mary was in Saudi. Heaven is richer because she is there.
