All tho I have never met Loren after reading about his life it brought tears to my eyes. What a kind and caring man. If only the world had more people like him. How lucky to have him as a father, grand father, a neighbor.a friend.. My prayers go out to the family.

Len and I were classmates of Loren and Marilee's and were saddened to read of Loren's passing.
Loren was a very kind classmate and we remember him fondly.
Our sympathies go out to the family. I am sure you have many fond memories of them.
God be with you all.

I have so many memories of Loren. Most special, his gift of kindness in words. He spoke directly from the heart with moist eyes, a soft voice and with meaningful well chosen words. I will miss his humble eye twinkling spirit. On wing and a prayer,
