Loreen, you left an indelible mark on the lives of those who were blessed to know you, and I sure am grateful for the mark you left on mine. You were a professional mentor, as much as a personal one. Terry and I are also beyond grateful for the love and care you and Syd showed to us throughout all our times together in Edmonton. And boy did we have some great laughs. Angels have your hands now, and I know you have been waiting for that. Somewhere those sweet dreams are now reality. Sending all our love and so many heart healing prayers to those mourning your passing – friends, family and loved ones. Rest easy now Loreen, and know how deeply you are forever loved.
Beautiful photo of a beautiful lady. Brilliant, funny, with a heart of gold. She will be missed by so many. Rest in Peace, and fly with the angels. Will never, ever forget you. My deepest condolences to her family.
Oh sweet sister I miss you so so much. I believe that wherever your dear soul is you are at peace, can breathe and no more pain. Fly high with your beloved angels and keep an eye on us that will join you one day. I love you
A piece of my heart went with you my sweet twin..I know you are at peace now, and not struggling so hard..I will miss and love you forever..
Loreen, you have been a great friend for almost 60 years, our family have so many lasting memories of our many times together, some were full of happiness and joy and some full of tragedy and sorrow. We are so grateful for having you and Syd as part of our lives. God saw you struggling to stay with us, so he took you to his loving home and freed you from all pain. We will miss you in our memories ,until we meet again .. our heart felt love to Syd ,Wayne and family .
Ann and I were sad to hear of Loreen’s passing. Syd, you and Loreen were the friendliest of neighbours. It’s very sad to learn that you will now be without your wonderful wife.
