We are so sorry to hear about Loren’s passing. Our thoughts and prayers are with your family as you heal from this sad loss. God bless all of you and may your memories bring you comfort during this difficult time.
He was my Godfather and truly a blessing in my life. I have fond childhood memories of him sneaking me $10 on my birthday when my Mom wasn’t looking. And throughout my life, whenever we were at the same event he always made a special trip over to see how I was doing. I will miss him. Jay
