I was beyond shocked and saddened to learn of Loretta’s passing. Loretta and I worked together at Stop And Shop in Hyannis for six years from 1992-1998. I have very fond memories of her and remember the love she had for her three sons and husband. Please accept my deepest condolences to her family and friends.
