In Oct of 2007 Loree let me know she had congentive heart failure. (you can go back to see the posting from that time) She was on oxygen and staying with her mother, so she could be watched and taken care of. She seemed to be getting better and went to see her daughter in I think Seattle for Thanksgiving 07. I talked to her in Sept of 08 and she seemed like the same old Loree, full of life. And I noticed that she posted recently with no indication that anything was wrong. That is all I know, unfortunetly.
