    Words cannot describe the loss that I feel. However, I feel so blessed to have had the opportunity to spend even more time with Loren and the rest of the family over the 4th of July weekend. My heart goes out to all of those who knew Loren. We must all remember the wonderful memories we have of Loren: his adventurous attitude, his wonderful music talents, his endless supply of love and compassion for all of the family and friends in his life – – and those dimples. Loren touched the lives of many. He was there to share the happy moments in our lives, and when we needed a friend in sad times, he proudly walked by our side. May those footprints he left behind never be erased by time. We will all miss you, cousin.

    Loren will be greatly missed by everyone. When I heard about his tragic accident I was shocked and I think many of us still are. He was not only a cousin to me, but also a little brother that I never had. We did so many things together growing up that I will never forget. He left a lasting impression on everyone that he met. He had a big heart full of love for his family and friends. His life was cut short, but I know he lived it to the fullest. I will always remember his smiling face with those dimples and everything else so wonderful about him. I will hold him and all the memories of my dear cousin forever in my heart.

    I met Loren at a 25th anniversary party about 13 years ago. Over the years I made several trips to Montana with his cousin Dorothy to see him and his family. I am so glad that I was able to see him again in July when we were in Nashville. I always liked watching and listening to him play. He always treated me like a true member of the family. He was a good person with a big heart. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family and friends. He will never be forgotten. Thanks for the memories.

    Loren will be sadly missed. I am his cousin. After he moved away when I was little I didn’t get to see him much. But what memories I have such as my first Montanta trip I will cherish forever. My prayers are with the family furing this sad time. He will not be forgotten.

    I had the pleasure of meeting Loren when he and the band came to the Northwest.
    He seem to be such a nice young man.
    I have a son the same age as Loren and my heart goes out to you at the time of need.
    Thank You for sharing your son with us.
