Wayne and family
Loretta was a warm, generous woman with a great talent for making people feel special. Wayne and Loretta were legendary in Shenandoah for creating a fun place to meet and eat...The Spot. She will be greatly missed. May your many friends, family, and all your special memories of her help ease the pain of her loss now and always.
