Luretta was a gift from God to all who had the pleasure of knowing her. Such a giving person. She was a blessing to our family in Virginia when she married my grandfather Richard Fagg. My Children have fond memories of granny Lou as we called her. I feel we can rest assured that Jesus has called her home to rest by his side. Love to all the family. Mason and Linda Fagg

I still remember playing the memory game with Granny Lou and her trying to teach me the basics of crocheting. Truly some fond memories. She will be missed. So very comforting to know that Jesus was her savior!
