Swanigan, Loretta R.'s Guestbook

I was blessed to know Loretta in her last chapter of life. She touched my heart deeply, in her care for others. She defended the underdog and comforted those she sensed were in distress. She had a sweet nature, loved to laugh, loved music, and children, and had a smile that lit up the room. I will forever hear her voice. She's such a sweet lady, I will miss her. My last encounters with her, she was in such a happy and cheerful mood, smiling that megawatt smile, I think God gave that to both her and us, a certainty before the fact that she was going to a better place, free from suffering, full of peace that surpasses understanding. I will never forget her. ❤️🙏❤️
