Condolence & Memory Journal

I recently found out about Lorfetta passing away. She was a good person. She and Leroy took care of my moms yard for over 20 years and took the time to talk to my mom and see if she had any needs as my mom aged. I know she is missed by many.

I just found out that Loretta passed last Sun.! I'm so sorry for the family! She had just cut our grass the Fri. before & I didn't get to talk to her but just a minute because she was headed to pick Leroy up to go out to eat. I'm sorry that we didn't get to talk more that day. I always enjoyed talking with her. She had just told me 2 weeks before that she was sorry to hear that my mom had passed away. Will miss her so much!

I just found out about Loretta's passing last week. I just saw her the end of April. I am shocked. She was such a good woman. I loved talking to her. She and Leroy cut the grass at Helping Hands for years. She and her daughter still bring the kids fresh eggs. She will definitely be missed by us. You all are in my sincere thoughts and prayers.

We just finished watching the memorial service for Loretta. It was beautiful and a wonderful tribute to a precious friend. Herschel and I have great memories of eating together and talking until late at night. We will forever hold the trip to the mountains and enjoying the singing on the mountain with the McNamee. The song God On The Mountain brought that trip back so vividly. With tears, I will miss Loretta. She was a jewel. Can't wait to see her again. Love you all.

Martha Curtis, my mother, was next door neighbors with Loretta for over 50 years. You could not say Loretta's name without Martha interrupting with, Loretta is such a wonderful person. The entire Hendricks family has been so fortunate to have had Loretta all those years.
