    I have known this lady about all my life, and she was always the same, very friendly, kind and everyone liked her. I visited her when I was working on the Lyon School history when she was about 95 years of age , and it was remarkable how her recall was, and she helped me identify a lot of pictures of people that were in the Community before I was born. Retter, you will be missed by multitudes of people.
    Rest in peace dear lady, and there is no doubt in my mind you will.

    I am so sorry for your loss. May “the God of all comfort” (2 Corinthians 1:3,4) comfort and soothe your heart. His promises, found in the Holy Scriptures, can offer much hope. It assures us at John 5:28,29 that our loved ones will be remembered and brought back to life in the resurrection. Please allow God’s Word to strengthen you and help you to endure this most difficult time.
