We are all so very thankful for the time we had with Grandpa and will miss him dearly.
LOREN WAS A FRIEND AND A IMPORTANT ASSOCIATE IN STATE FARM. I RESPECT HIS MEMORY AND ADMIRE HIM AS A HEARTFELT, SUPERVISOR, FAMILY MAN AND PERSON OF HONOR
God Speed, Loren. Reading about your history, reads like a history of State Farm The company reaching into the education ranks to hire a young agent. It was a wonderful decision for you and State Farm as you were on the fast track to changing many lives. You will be missed and my sympathy to all the boys and the many, many grand and greats..

So sad to hear of your Dad's passing. He was an inspiration to all who had the honor to meet and know him. Our best to the family in this time of sorrow and grief. If anyone deserved to be in Heaven it was Loren Edmonds.

Dear Mary Jane and Family, Brent and I are so sorry for the loss of your husband, father, father-in-law, grandfather, great-grandfather, and friend to many. We enjoyed the times we got to share a meal with Loren and Mary Jane in the Dining Room at the Capital Manor. He always took an interest in us, and we so enjoyed laughing with him.
Today I heard a new song, by Bethel Worship’s Steffany Gretziner, called, ALL THAT LIVES FOREVER. In it, a recurring refrain caught my attention. “Death is just a door that leads us home to You. We’re travelers here, only passing through. Death is just a door that leads us home to You.” I praise God, that you all will get to be with him again, and we will get to laugh with him again. May God comfort you during this sad time. Take care of Mary Jane! Sincerely, Mary and Brent Knox.
