Loretta was an elementary and high school class mate. She pierced my ears when I was 16. I got into a little trouble over that decision. I will miss you my old friend.

Loretta and her siblings grew up on the farm next to my grandparent's farm in rural Pleasant Lake. I have fond memories of her from those days. She was a member of my high school graduating class and a cherished member of the Pleasant Lake kids of that era. I am saddened to hear of her passing and extend my sincerely condolences to the members of her family..
