Always a joy to be around Loretha she was always cutting up with me and had a big smile on her face. Loved when we got to go to Cucci's for Christmas wished we could have gotten together a lot sooner to have done this. Kevin and Brian your Mom was so proud of you both and also her grandchildren. Love you guys!
