mom,i have been missing you so much.There have been many many days of crying tears that I never thought would stop.Damien talks to you all the time and hears you talk to him so that must be your way of telling us you are ok and happy.I still have no yellow finches,so maybe you can send some my way since your not able to feed them at your house.I know they are propably wondering what happened to their good feeding place...Give my love to everyone there and let them know they are missed and thought of often...I know you are in a better place and not lonely anymore so I just try to keep that in mind..However I sometimes get that selfish feeling and want you back with us...So please forgive me for that...Rest In Peace untill we are together again....Love Your Baby Girl...Lynn

Please accept our sympathy on the loss of your mother! She was a wonderful person and aunt. We will always remember the special times with Uncle Bob and Aunt Ardith at our gatherings at Grandma Angeline Rettig's house for the holidays. May you find consolation in knowing that she is enjoying her reunion with your father and will continue to look after her children with the same love she shared with you while on earth. The Roger, Paul, Arnold, and Marilyn Rettig families
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

In the short time I was able to know Grandma Rettig, I grew very fond of her. She was an awesome lady and you could definitely tell that by the family surrounding her. I know she will be missed dearly by everyone who knew her. You guys are in my thoughts and prayers...

I remember comming to the store to get candy or ice cream. You were a wonderful lady. Whenever I saw you at the post office you always asked about mom and dad. You will be greatly missed.
