Granny, I know you are happy to be with Pop and the rest of the family that awaited your arrival. I also know that you wanted to make sure that the rest of us would be ok before you let go, I will do my part to make sure everyone will be. I miss your smile, cooking and sense of humor. I will cherish the time spent with you and your antics. Thank you for exposing me to I Love Lucy and The Golden Girls. Also for sharing the music of your time with me, especially The Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy. I hope you are having fun catching up, playing cards and doing puzzles. Love you Granny.
Michele, John and Caine.

I have so many of them and there would never be enough space to list them all. I do want to say that my Aunt Rita was one of the most beautiful, kind and loving woman I have ever known in my life. She will be missed by so many. Until I see you on the other side.

My mother was always my best friend, she was always there to console us when times were tough. She was there when we were ill. She kept us fed, clothed and healthy. She was there during the happy times: the birthday parties, the graduations, weddings etc. to do whatever she could for her family. Rita may be gone now but mom you will always be here with me in my heart. Love you mom❤️

You ever loving son Wayne

I have so many wonderful memories of my life with Rita as my mother. To express them all; I would need to write a book. Any one who knew my mom, knew what a great person she was. She was always ready to extend a helping hand, never turning her back on anyone. Growing up; every New year's eve at midnight she would walk around the block ringing her bell, when she moved to Florida I took over that job. Now my eldest daughter Michele has that job. This is a tradition that will carry on. I am going to miss my mom deeply, gonna miss her crazy sense of humor. Our mother daughter times. Playing BINGO, putting together puzzles, and the crazy card games. Doing her hair, so much will be missed, but she will live forever always in my heart. May you RIP mom, we will unite again. Give daddy a hug and kiss for me.
