  1. Kelly and Anita Jones

    Loren was such a precious soul. Maryanne was also such a strong lady during her illness. We loved them both when they attended Westridge Christian Church. He actually gifted us with a KCChiefs rug. We cherish our memories with them. So sorry for your loss.

  2. Jeff Elwer

    I remember playing church softball with Loren. The games against Four Square church sometimes got heated. Loren and Maryanne enjoyed playing games and our best time together was a western mystery dinner where we all came to dinner in costumes. Loren will be sorely missed and my prayers are with him and his family as they mourn his passing.

    Matt, So sorry for the loss of your dad. We will be keeping y'all in our prayers as you go through this time. In Christ's love, Pam&Brian
