Mrs. Loretta Szmyt was a truly dedicated wife and mother and our family could not have asked for a better neighbor. We miss the Doc and will miss her presence as well. Mrs. Szmyt's kind demeanor and humble nature endeared her to the neighborhood and served as an example for all to emulate. One of my favorite memories is of Mrs. Szmyt's squeaky clothesline that my family heard every day. It was one of those neighborhood sounds that became a fixture. It is silent now, but we'll have that memory and many more to enjoy through the years. My prayers go out to Pam, Ken, Jim and the Kzresik family. God Bless.
