Mike: As the days and weeks pass, and as you return to Life''s routine, may you feel some comfort in knowing she and Rod are playing their guitars, singing and arguing about which one is the better looking. She fought a hard and long battle and now she can rest in peace. Take care and if you need anything, please call.

Mike, im so sorry to hear of Aunt Rets passing. My mind instantly goes back to all the memories of Dad and her playing music. Those were some of my best memories they both loved to play and sing together and she will be greatly missed. Such a strong person to have survived lung cancer only to have a stroke take her doesnt seem fair. My prayers go out to you, Aunt Sis, Aunt Zeda, and Aunt Butch as you try to heal.
