    So sorry to hear about Ms. Retha’s passing. She was the librarian when my sons were young. They loved to visit the library, and she was always eager to help them. One of my sons has a passion for reading and he gives her the credit for this. We own a furniture store in Stamps, and not only was she a customer, she was part of our family. God bless you.
