Loretta was just the loveliest person and so kind to me and my mother when we moved next door thirty years ago. I know she is in heaven and reunited with her loved ones (including Piper) and looking over you all - but especially you, Tina - you were by her side every day with Michaela, and were a help and comfort to her in her last years. Sending love to the entire Faust family from Mary Ann and Christina Vitabile.
