    Dear Loretta and Lorraine
    Your mum was such a caring person .I will always remember her with a smiling face especially when I ran into her at numerous church fairs. She would ask about me with a twinkle in her eyes and always say something pleasant about what I was wearing. When we were in the sixth grade and Loretta was my pen pal because pine hill had double sessions, she said that sending kind written words was up lifting and that it brought a smile to its receiver. Yes, your mum was one in a million. So sorry to hear
    Pen pal
