It is with a heavy heart that we share this news. Loretta, our Office Coordinator, passed away October 3rd after a long battle with medical complications. She has been a part of our ALOHA family for over 30 years and gave her heart and soul to all who have walked through our doors. Those who knew her personally understand it is impossible to honor her in such a short message, but she wanted to thank everyone for their thoughts and prayers. (That is our Loretta – always so prompt.) Soon we will be sharing with you our memories of this amazing lady and celebrate her dedication to improving the lives of people with hearing loss.
Arrangements are being made by her family and will be available shortly.
We have missed Loretta’s smile over the past few months so share one for her today – smiles are contagious.
