    Remembering Loretta takes me back many years. We were in PTA together and I attended a number of her Tupperware parties and bought many pieces of Tupperware from her. I still have some and think of Loretta each time I use them. She was always a lovely person. My thoughts and prayers for her family.

  3. Barbara Mills says:

    I am so grateful for Loretta’s friendship and will always remember the fun times we had together especially when she and Herman went to Florida to take my grandson home! We went to Paula Deen’s in Savannah and to the Tupperware Auditorium in Orlando. Too many good times to mention, but most of all how much she loved doing for those less fortunate
