R-E-S-P-E-C-T: Fans pay their last to Aretha Franklin

Lines stretched half a block down from the Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History an hour before public visitation was set to begin, The Detroit News reported. There, they found Franklin in her bronze casket in a sheer light blue dress and matching shoes, a change from the red outfit she wore on Tuesday.
