Guest Book

“I remember Loretta from when she worked at WSU. She was a friend to me and I have never forgotten her. I enjoyed our talks together. I just found a business card of hers that I kept and decided to look her up and found she had passed just recently. This card was found on the floor of my living room. Why it was there is a mystery. I like to think she directed the whole thing so I would know she is on the other side. Rest in Peace Loretta. I will see you when I get there! Laura – WSU Class of 1993.”

“Fly high with the angels! Rest in peace!”
