To all who knew her, Rita was a lovely, gracious, lady. I will never forget my long visit with Rita, Sam and Susan when Billy and Brian were little, we had such a nice time. I am sure you will miss her very much, Sam and Susan. For too many years, she was all you had. Love to you guys. And prayers for your peace.
