To Retta's family I'm so sorry for your loss. She was my best friend partner in crime for a long time. She taught me so much about animals and just life in general. Our 2 calls a day even if it wasn't important. My sweet friend is resting in peace waiting for us to join her. She was a wonderful friend and I will miss her dearly.

We are so sorry for your loss. I have some treasured memories of her and my visits on the Antioch. When I was young, I often found myself driving back to visit her and get away from things, I could always count on her for her opinion, but she never judged. She will be missed by many.

We are so very sorry to hear of your mom's passing. Your mom was a very strong and passionate person she will be missed by all that knew her. I enjoyed our visits when she used to come up to see Joel. I know Joel is going to miss her a lot he is going to miss their phone calls and he said he isn't going to have anyone to argue with anymore.
Kristina, you and the family are in our thoughts and prayers. RIP Retta
