Retha Frankland Obituary, Death – My degree of sadness is both intense and deeply deep as a result of the tragic news that my good friend Retha Foster Frankland has passed away. This news has caused me to experience a level of grief that is both acute and profound. During a significant chunk of my life, Retha was someone who offered me words of encouragement, lent me an ear when I needed to vent, and prayed with me. She was also someone who was always there for me.
She was there for me for a significant portion of my life and I am grateful for that. She began her career at the International Offices in a lower-level position and worked her way up through the ranks, during which time she worked a variety of positions and was accountable for a wide range of responsibilities at each level. Her ultimate objective was to provide our COGOP family the very best that she had to offer, and she actively encouraged others to achieve the same goal.
This aim did not shift in the slightest no matter what role she played within the COGOP family of organizations. At this time, I want you to know that this great family is in my thoughts and prayers, and that I am bringing them up in prayer right now.
