  1. We are deeply sorry for your loss ~ Lux Funeral Home & Cremation Services

  2. Q: What will you miss most about Arretta?

    A: Retta’s laugh was something I will always remember. Her and my Granny had the same laugh and it was infectious. I also remember her being the manager at Clear Springs. We have one up in Tyler, and every time I go there, I think about her.

  3. We are so sorry to hear of Rettas passing. She was an amazing person. We always enjoyed our visits with her. At least Danny has his favorite Aunt with him now to keep him company. I know they are up there having a beer and celebrating right now. Craig if we can do anything please let us know. ❤️JJ, Dylan,&Caden Thompson
