    My thoughts and prayers go out to Lauretta’s family. She had such a good heart and always gave of herself to others. I knew Lauretta through my sister and worked with her at MGH over 30 years ago. She used to say I was like her little sister. Although we didn’t talk often over the years, she kept me in the loop and I always knew she was there, especially looking out for my sister, Helen. I’m so sorry for your loss. She is and will be dearly missed.

Send your condolences.
