Memories Timeline


  1. Dear Tammy, Wayne, Paul:Please accept our heartfelt sympathy. We love Aunt Loretta so very much and she will be missed. I talked to her often and will miss our conversations and her stories about my Mom! I believe that Uncle Sonny, Grandma and Grandpa, Uncle Calvin, Uncle Lloyd, and Mom were there with her when she passed and took her back to heaven with them. I wish I could be there for and with you all. I will, however, continue to keep you all in my prayers. Love and prayers, Brian Ann Wahl

  2. I was rather freaked to hear of Miss Loretta's passing virtually hours within the timing of MATTES's death. That had to be of devine nature like they be communicating with each other in a journey, just as they had for the 25+ years of working side by side at the water division. Now as they recieve angel wings, Miss Loretta already having been an ANGEL ON THIS EARTH, will dearly see that MATTE accepts his wings also; Where they will have more power to help us poor fractured earth creatures. may we have the will means to humbly reach for a communion of the saints Prayer for our peace. condolence pours out of our family for our dear ANGEL Ms Loretta.

  3. Loretta's family – I wish I had taken the time to call Loretta when I returned to Lake Charles. What wonderful, priceless memories I have of her! We worked together at the Water Company for 22 years. God is receiving an amazing lady. My prayers are with you as you come to terms with your grief.

  4. Mike, Debbie and Kayla, I am so sorry to hear of the passing of your precious aunt. I know she will be missed by all.

  5. Tammy, Wayne and Paul, I was sad to hear the news. I wish I could be there with you, but I sent a hug to you with my mom. Loretta will always be Mom #2 for me. I know growing up I stayed at your house a lot. It wasnt just to play ball with you guys. I had many great talks with her at the kitchen table. Even as an adult living so far away, I called her for advise with my own children. She was always willing to listen and it helped. We have all lost a great mom. I hope she gives Paulette a hug for me when she gets to heaven. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

  6. Tammy,Wayne and Paul;I am so sorry to hear of the loss of your mother. I pray for you, for strenght to get through your loss.
