"Dearest Carol, I just wanted to send a little note of love and warmth to you and the family. What an amazing life Loretta had and you Carol, you made that possible by always making sure she had everything she ever needed. I loved getting to spend time with you and Loretta whenever you brought her by for her hearing aids. Loretta was a lot of fun and I truly miss her but I wanted to drop you a quick note to say every effort you put in will always be remembered and I send you all warmth, love, and good memories. God Bless, Tracy Myers from Beltone"
