Rita you've told me so many of your cherished memories. The love and devotion you had for all the children you taught I'm sure has changed their lives for the better, the animals you've loved and cherished were all waiting for you at the Rainbow Bridge and the help and care you shared with the homeless will never be forgotten. You were a loving and giving woman and have certainly earned your place in Heaven. Thank you for taking such good care of Aunt Helen, tell her we said Hi. Love you now and forever and until we meet again. love, Chrissy

Mrs. Rita,

So sad to hear of your passing. I will miss our phone calls on Fridays and you begging me to come have lunch or to allow you to take the ladies to lunch.
Our longest standing client, one of the originals, Grandmother of Final Touch Housekeeping...this just tickled you when we discussed this. You will be missed by us all.
Rest now, I am glad I was given the opportunity to get to know you!

Dear Rita, in the short time we have known each other you have given me much more than you know. Your friendship has been so special to me. I will miss your friendly smile and our lunches together (peanut butter and jelly) was our favorite. I will also miss your Penny, who greeted me with so much joy (because she knew I would give her treats).
May you rest in peace in the arms of the glorious angels who will carry you to the Lord to be reunited with passed family and friends including your Molly who you cherished so much.
You will be missed, all my love to you.

Oh Rita , what a special person you were. You were so happy when the photo of you and Molly was hung at the new Partridge Creek shopping center. You were a kind advocate for animals. We shared that passion. God Grant You eternal rest. I know Molly was waiting for you.
