I have spent the past month or so watching the complete MASH series from episode 1 through Goodbye Farwell and Amen as well as the reunion specials. And although I identify with Klinger you were my favorite. I only wish they allowed you to sing more on the show.

Merry xmas loretta.I was born in 1944 and lived on 9`th st. I just have a few memories of you but I always was a fan. My dad was a good friend of your father.I don`t get back to Passaic much but still have the memories.Hope to hear from you. Happy New Year John

Hi Loretta, sorry to see that you haven`t many fans. Thats a shame because you are a wonderful actress. The reason I was looking you up was to see if you have kids, I saw a young lady on TV the other night whose name was Lorraine Swit( I think Lorraine, it started with a "L") and I thought daughter or grand-daughter.
