My condolences to Loreen's family. I was very shocked to hear of her passing. We graduated together from St. Clair High in 1977. We had so much fun together during those years. I saw Loreen several years ago after 30+ yrs at the all class reunion and then again when we got together for drinks and to reminisce about the good ole days! A life cut way too short! Fly high Loreen!! Heaven has a new angel!

To The Family Of zLoreen Marie ( Grubbs) Garrity: You have my sincere condolences during this sad occasion. The one and only true living God, who has created all things as we consider reading Psalms 83:18, in the Holy Bible. The Sovereign Lord Jehovah, is the most high over the entire Universe! He deserves Exclusive Devotion From all of mankind and Sacred Service to him,and to him alone.

The Bible confirms that the pain of losing a mate is both cruel and long lasting. Some researchers hold that no stress is more severe than that resulting from the death of a beloved mate. Many bereaved ones agree with that.

I would like to share a Scripture with you from the Holy Bible at Math 6:34-"So never be anxious about the next day, for the next day will have its own anxieties.Each day has enough of its own troubles."

I would like to invite you to a website www.jw.org for accurate knowledge of the Holy Bible, and more Bible Truths!
