Aunt Shirley, Claire & Cathy. I remember Aunt Rita from when I was a young girl.
Sorry for your loss. She is now in Heaven with God and Mutt.

There are so many memories to share about Aunt Rita that it is difficult to pick just one. I do remember my family going over to their home every Saturday evening. My sister would visit with Claire and I was younger. Cathy would sit on the floor in front of the bookshelves and read to me or we would play “battle”. Aunt Rita and Uncle Mutt were always wonderful hosts. I think of Aunt Rita often with fond memories. I really miss them both. Thoughts and prayers to you, Cathy and Claire. Miss y’all and love y’all.

Dear Cathy, Clare, Mrs. Shirley and Family,
Was so shocked to see Mrs. Rita's picture on the Hargrave website this evening. I am so very sorry for your loss. May you have the peace and comfort that only the good Lord can give during this very sad time. Mrs. Rita was always so good to me and my family and Mama loved her dearly. I bet they are catching up right now along with all her loved ones gone before her. May she rest in peace.
Hugs to all,
Dale Fromenthal Hubert
