So sorry to hear of this. I had run into Retha several times in the last couple of years and always left our conversations with a smile on my heart. She was such a gentle soul and had a beautiful smile. Rest in peace my friend.

My memories of Retha on the ball field as our kiddos grew up together are priceless. I will always remember her smile, and open arms. A few years back, I was downtown, and saw a lady ahead of me in line, only to the back, but, I knew it was Retha. She just had a way about her, that was always recognizable and her smile was infectious. RIP my friend, my heart is saddened, but, I will see you later, free of pain, and dancing with the angels.
