"Sending a little note to offer my sympathies for family of Loral Mae Keith.  
We had lots of fun together at the Senior Citizens and enjoyed listening to Loral Mae and Thelma.  Then Loral Mae's health declined and was not able to attend the Senior Citizens anymore.  We always got updated on Loral Mae's health.  She was a very special person as well as all of her sisters.  I knew them all, but do not remember a lot about the brothers.
Loral Mae always had something to say and enjoyed helping taking care of the children at the day care centers.  She was a special person and I loved her dearly.  Rest in Peace my friend.   Ellen"

"My deepest sympathies and sadness over this sweet ladys’ passing. I have so many fond memories of the short conversations I had with her at church, or on the way past her house when we were farming and she and Thelma still lived on Curl Lane and quite often when they would come into Thalhimers/Hechts to go shopping and I would be working putting up stock. Her favorite phrase every time she would see me was “you been shopping lately?” She knew I hated shopping and that my working at a dept store was just to help out with our household budget and folding and hanging clothes and buying them, was the last thing I wanted to do. She always laughed when she asked me that because she knew what my reaction would be. She had such a dry but keen sense of humor and although quiet, her words were always wise and right on point. I loved talking to her and missed that after she began to decline in her later years.  I know her passing will leave a huge hole in Thelma’s heart and life and I know only time and the good Lord can fill that void. My prayers will be with her as well as the rest of the family. Thinking of you all with love and sadness."
