Sorry to hear of Rita's passing. She was an avid zellers shopper and loved having visits with her. I remember doing flowers for Howard's funeral when we owned grower direct. I always enjoyed our visits, as she would always talk about her family.

Bev and I offer our sympathies and our prayers..

To the family of Rita:

I had the great joy in providing care for your special Mother, as a nurse. We had such good times laughing together. Your Mom enjoyed so much in showing me the cards and pictures of all of you. And when the great grand child came along she was so excited. She loved you all so much. She was such a “trooper” when her health difficulties increased. We both attempted to encourage each other in dealing with both of our health journeys. Even after retiring for three years she still remembered my name. She will be one that I will have great memories of and a great joy to remember. I will be praying for Christ to reveal His love to you during this tough time of loss.
