104 years! What a wonderful life and lady. My father, Alvin Panaccione who passed away last April, took us to visit Loretta and Orie numerous times over the years. We so loved spending time with Loretta and Orie. It's hard to believe that it's been 10 years since Orie passed. It's comforting to know that the two of them are once again together. Combined, Loretta and Orie lived 200 years. There are very few couples who can claim such a feat. Both of you will be missed, but never forgotten. Thank you for so many wonderful memories. You meant so much to us.
