    Loretta was an anchor in my youth. She was a great listener, confidant, friend and mentor. She taught me the importance of being active in the church and how to treat people from all walks of life. I recall her fond words and memories of Herb and her praise and kind thoughts of what all her kids and grandkids were up to. My thoughts and prayers to the rest of the Bagnall family and know that Loretta lived a great happy life.

    I am so sorry I missed the funeral. I have no excuse other than I simply forgot. Believe me I regret it and am still kicking myself. The positive note is I can still see her sitting in the front pews during Fr. Bagnall’s mass. I especially wanted to offer condolences to Fr. Larry and the family, and was so looking forward to seeing Nora after all these years. Perhaps I can make it up to you via lunch soon.
