Not sure what to say?

Thank you all for your kind words and for sharing your funny little stories about Loretta. I loved the story from Meg - so typical of Loretta. I remember once when I was probably about 8 and I told Loretta I was running away - her response - be home in time for dinner. To Charlie, how lucky we are to be part of the Lillis clan. I too imagine her singing and dancing with your Mom and all the others. Til we meet again, may God hold them in the palm of his hands.

Mrs. McLean, what such a nice lady -always happy and funny ! I remember as a little girl I came to her door with flowers (I think I picked from her yard ) to sell, she chuckled and payed "top dollar" she was just like that ! The entire family were such good people and neighbors, she obviously was a wonderful mother !

My loving thoughts are with you all. Loretta was a cherished treasure for so many.

She had six wonderful girls but was mother to all of us. Our field trips, our Brownie events, the grammar school cake sales and bazaars. Your life was a joyful journey and you shared that with so many of us along the way. God Bless You and Keep You in the Palm of His Hand.

Dearest Mrs. McLean, how lucky we were to have you here for 95 years . . . how sad we are to see you go. May God Bless You Always.

With love,
Catherine, Mark & Monica

I'll always remember the great times, in Marshfield and Holidays with the McLeans. Most of my cousins and Aunts and Uncles seemed so old, so "Lolleta" was one of my only real Aunts.
She always brought the Brighams ice cream and hot chocolate sauce at Holidays.
She is now with the rest of the Lillis clan and probably singing and dancing up a storm.
We loved you Aunt Lollie!
