Hickman, Loretta Mae's Guestbook

We loved Loretta. Her zest for life, can do attitude and willingness to try new things were an inspiration. We loved hanging out with Loretta at the Show Me Gourd Society festivals each year and serving with her on the SMGS Board. Loretta was a talented gourd artist but she was an even better friend. She even went out of her way to meet us for drinks at Ann's brother's bar. We were shocked and impressed when she ordered a dirty martini. One time she showed up dressed to the nines because she was headed to her dance lessons. We had the utmost respect for Loretta and she will truly be missed. We are saddened that we are unable to attend the services.
