She'll be missed

The Detroit Tigers responded to news of Aretha Franklin's death by giving her some "R-E-S-P-E-C-T" on their scoreboard.  A picture of Franklin with the title of her legendary song were on display at the stadium.

The 76 year old, Queen of Soul, passed away on Thursday morning at around 9:50 a.m. at her Detroit home due to advanced pancreatic cancer.
