Rita I am so sorry for your loss. Letha is so happy in Heaven signing and playing for the Lord. I am so sorry I can't make it to the service. I have been in the hospital an d am still to weak to go anywhere. I have so many memories of her when I was allowed to go stay with Uncle Bill's for a few days.  She was one of a kind. She will be greatly missed.
