I had the privilege of working with Miss Retha in the Mid 90's. She brightened the office every day she was there. She would always lend an ear if needed, or share an adventure she had with her family. She was gracious, kind and someone you wanted to spend time with. I cherish my memories of working with her and was very happy to call her my friend. She touched my heart as I'm sure she touched many. My deepest condolences to her wonderful family.
