    My heart and thoughts are with all the family. I have many special memories with Loretta. She is a very special friend that I will always treasure. Love to all, may they feel the comfort of our Heavenly Father.

  • Our family is so sorry for your loss. Loretta was such a beautiful woman inside and out. Always the life of the party! I remember staying at your home several times when you lived in Utah. She always made those experiences so fun. I’m so grateful I was able to see her at our last reunion. Loretta will be missed. Sending lots of love your way.❤️

    Loretta is such a loving woman. She always had a smile and a kind word for everyone. Mom loved going with me to visit Loretta. What a pleasure it has been to know her. I will miss you Loretta.

  • Dorothy Ray Shupe

    My prayers and love are with you Allen. She was such and example to everyone around her. Her pure happiness was always a welcome sight. I loved working with her in the temple. She was such a wonderful friend to my mom and I know without a doubt that they are having a big hugfest in heaven.

  • Aunt Loretta always made me feel so special and loved. Some fond memories come from swimming in the pool during our visits. I wish I could be there to offer hugs and love. She was such a fighter over the last few months and will be incredibly missed. All my love.

  • Dear Allan, I am Norman’s son David mother in law. I’m just hearing of your dear wife’s passing (Loretta). I am so sorry, she was a dear soul. You have lost a dear love in your heart. I wish all the blessings God can give through this card to let you know you are thought of.

  • John & Debbie White

    We are saddened by Loretta’s passing. She brightened the lives of everyone she touched and we will sorely miss her.

  • Michelle Call Farnsworth

    What a beautiful service for a beautiful woman! Loretta truly is everything that was shared about her. She really did make people feel special and loved. A remarkable example to us all. I remember camping with you all sometime in the 70s and the little box trailer that was pulled behind the tent trailer full of nothing but Hostess treats. That was the Call family’s best camping trip ever! Gerda would never dream of indulging us with Hostess. I also remember when you moved back to Utah I cried a lot over that and was so emotional over losing my friends that it drove me to hold hands (in their individual coat pockets) with both Mike amd Rod, one on each side, during a Mtn View football game. I thought if I held on, they wouldn’t go. I was so happy when you moved back! I love this family and the beautiful memories and love I have been priveledged to share with you over the years. Wish I was there to share hugs all around.

  • Destin&Jammi Smith & Family

    Thanks for not being selfish and for sharing Loretta with the world. The world’s greatest cheerleader of mankind will be missed. We all need to do our best to cheer for each other like Loretta taught us. We ❤ the Smith/Teeples family!!

  • Jim & Kathy Adair

    Loretta will be so missed by everyone who knew her!! She was such a special lady, always so full of sunshine. She made us all feel welcome and loved and happy. She just had such a natural talent for making people feel better just because they had “run into Loretta today”!!! We all loved her. Thanks for broadcasting the funeral so we could be there even when we couldn’t be there. It was a wonderful tribute to her. Our thoughts and love go out to you and your family. Love, Jim and Kathy

  • The service was beautiful
    My thoughts and prayers are with uncle Alan and the rest of the family
    It’s definitely a bittersweet time but it is also a blessing to know about the plan of salvation
    And that Loretta is no longer suffering
    Love to all
