Don and Family,
You have our deepest sympathy. Loretta was always a great lady with such a cheerful disposition. We remember her from Ascension in Virginia Beach, always happy and helpful at church functions. She was a great lady and will be missed by everyone who has known her through the years. We pray for you all to receive strength from the Holy Spirit to cope with this great loss to your family. Please take some comfort knowing that she is resting at peace with Our Lord.

I am so sorry to hear of the loss of your mom Jeff and family. It's been a long time since I have see her but do remember all the times we were at your home in Kempsville, in our high school years, and she was such a fun lady and laughed lots! Now she is reunited in peace with Julianne. Thoughts and prayers are with all of the Bishop family.
