Its a very sad day all of the world. Even though we somewhat prepared our hearts for her passing the news of the passing of Aretha Franklin still hit our hearts like a ton of bricks. The selfish side of us wanted her to stay and live forever, however we didnt want her to continue to suffer. Growing up in church, her soulful, spiritual vocals had me caught up many times. There are so many memories about This great woman and she will be missed. RIP ARETHA FRANKLIN the suffering is over.
