I don't remember the first time I met Aunt Retta, as I must have been a baby. Maybe it was at the Grand Ave. house, or at my grandpa's (her brother, Charlie) house, or maybe it was a church or another family member's home?

One of my first memories of her was before she moved on assignment to Akron. I knew I would miss visiting her, so my mom (Marlene) suggested we become pen pals. So we did. I think I was about 8 or 9. It was good practice for me to write too, and ooohhh how I looked forward to receiving those letters from Aunt Retta! She would tell me about her activities as a 4th grade teacher, as the kids were about the same age as I was at the time. I remember her beautiful handwriting, and telling me of the details of her day. Oh how I wish I kept them!

As time went on, she eventually moved back to Cincinnati, I married and moved out of state. Our writing had stopped long before and I had not seen her for well over 20+ years when I was reunited with her over the holidays in 2000. After a quick introduction, she remembered me and we had good visits every time I was in town. I thoroughly enjoyed the stories she would tell about growing up on Grand Ave and about what a trickster my grandpa and his brothers were. It always made her smile to think of them too. =) I'm glad she's finally reunited with them.

Attached is a picture of my last visit with her. I will miss visiting her as I always looked forward to our visits. =)

I miss you, Aunt Retta; but, I look forward to our next visits in eternity! =)

Aunt Lauretta was so kind and patient. She welcomed everyone with an open heart. I will miss her very much.
