When I was teaching in the Medical Secretary program at BMCC, Ms. Vogt was so helpful in giving advice to our program through our Advisory Board and in letting our students come to her office for field trips. She was always gracious and friendly, yet very professional. I think she had one of our students getting real office training in her office almost every quarter throughout the years. I really enjoyed and appreciated her. With Sympathy to her family, Pat Rittenbach

I will miss Loleta's smiling face & her conversations after Saturday Masses. Loleta always asked about my family & there was so much about Loleta's life I did not know. She was a Great Lady and will be missed.My Prayers are with Loleta and with the family. God Bless.
