Hi Kathryn! My parents are Don Loertscher and Gloria. My parents got divorced in 1982 or 83. And his brother is John Loertscher and he has two sisters Barbara and Patricia. My dad Don just recently passed away on Sept. 8, 2005. He was living in California which is where his brother John and his sister Patricia live. Don's other sister lives in Iowa. I'm living in Texas which I moved here in 1987 with my mom Gloria and my step dad and my sister. Which my sister died when she was 27 on Feb. 14, 1998. I dont know if you know but in the Loertscher family there is a blood disorder which my sister died from and we believe my dad died from also. And we believe Eugene did also now after looking at his death certificate. My uncle John which is Eugene's son as well he suffers from this blood disorder as well and he has been since he was 25. I have it also which I found this out after I had my son in Dec. of 1998. My sister that died from it she has 2 boys which are 13 and almost 16 the oldest has it also. I hope we can talk further. Its nice to see another Loertscher out there. Maybe we can share information on your side and also Eugene's side of the family.
