    I'm so grateful for the time I got to spend with Loreda June 15 th 2019. She told me that she shares a birthday with her sisters and how much she loved my mother Lela Elberta Adams. The whole time I had tears of joy running down my face. Such a wonderful and blessed day. R.I.P. Loreda. I love you and you are truly missed. Until I get to see you again United in Christ .
