Was so sorry to hear about Retha. I'll always remember her making me laugh and always being a very good friend to me. she was a wonderful person.
My favorite memory was our junior prom. There were 3 couples well you guys decided that the guys would ride up front in the car and us girls would sit in the back. We all had a blast that night. Will keep you and your family in my prayers.

I really don’t remember a time in my life that didn’t include Mrs. Retha, Mr. Lynn, Tammy and Brandon! They are more than neighbors to us and have always been there when my mom or dad needed them! Mrs. Retha will surely be missed by everyone that knew her. Praying for everyone. Love you all!!
