3 Condolences to Loretta Jean Spence (Cookie) Davis

  1. Debbie Spence says:

    Aunt Cookie, I will miss you so, and I will miss our long talks. I regret not seeing you recently; I’m sorry, but I am so glad Mom and Miss Bootsie made those visits. Miss Bootsie really wanted to send you on a spa day at your discharge. I am so very sad, but I find some peace knowing you are not suffering and that you have rejoined Charlie. Please hug him and Mammaw for me. I’m glad you let me take some great pictures of you in August and September; you sure looked fabulous. I’ll look after Elizabeth for you. Rest in Peace. Love, Debbie (and Cameron, too).

  2. Sharon DiNardo and family says:

    Cookie will be missed by so many. Our heartfelt sympathy to all the family at this time of great sorrow. You will be in our thoughts and prayers.

  3. Jackie Scott says:

    To the Family: I have known Loretta as friend for more than 40 years. Our children grew up together and we have kept in touch even though living miles apart. My heart is heavy and so sorry that I could not be there in person for the funeral this morning, but I am certainly there in spirit. My sympathy and my prayers are for all of you. Sincerely, Jackie Scott
