Loreena, I just got the Journal and read about the fire and your untimely death.. I'm just stunned, I'll bet I think of you on a weekly basis. I was working with you during Loreena's law and fixed your hair and applied your makeup for your trip to Lansing. How beautiful you were, with or without the makeup. I remember our trip to see the Spinners and we just had a ball. I took my favorite picture of you but

I met Loreena, a Long time ago, back in the late 70's early 80's! I took her to different dances and Catholic prayer groups! She was a Strong woman with a lot of faith! She always had a Smile on her face! I am verry sorry for the loss of Loreena! My prayers are with the family! I remember that house on ten mile in St Clair shores where Loreena and her Mom lived!

Loreena and I were classmates when she and Jennie talked me in to taking her to a singles dance- I wasn't even single! Loreena and I became great friends as Sunday after Sunday we made plans to do something special together. Our Sunday outings ended when I moved school - but i never forgot my friend.
The last time I saw Loreena she showed me her manuscript - A Cry for Education- I asked Loreena to clean up my language

Loreena was one of our long time and favorite customers. When she came in she always had a smile on her face, which was contagious, because by the time she left, you had a smile on your face as well. She had such a strong spirit and energy about her, and she will truly be missed by all of those people that she came into contact with. Such a sad and tragic end to a life of a woman who

Remember Loreena and her mom, Jennie coming to Shrine Singles. Loreena just enjoyed everything. And Jennie had to make sure our singles club was top-notch. The guys were all nice to her. Loreena decided that she would pursue other interests, that's when I heard she began dabbling in writing. I pass by her old house on Ten Mile on my way to the dentist. I often think about her. How sad that somebody that had such determination to live like

Although I did not know Loreena personally I had met her years ago at a craft show where I purchased a copy of her book from her. Over the years I often thought of Loreena and her mother and wondered how she was. When I heard the news tonight on Fox 2 I couldn't believe my eyes . Please know that Loreena touched my life and was an inspiration to me as we have a family member with cerebral palsy..I

It was a pleasure to know Loreena and her mother for the past 19 years. They were admired for their courage and the love they had for each other and will be missed. We pray that Loreena will find peace in heaven and be reunited with her family that has past before her.

Rest in peace sweet lady.
