On May 13 our family lost a very special lady. Mrs. Loeb came into my life when I was 10 years old. When I was 20 years old, I was blessed to be able to call her my mother-in-law and friend. She was a devoted wife, loving mother, wonderful mother-in-law and an awesome grandmother. She was known as a kind and sweet person by all who knew her. As much as our family will miss her, she was ready to go join Mr. Loeb. I love you and will always cherish my memories of you.
