I am sad to learn Rita has passed away. I first met her at the laundry 20 years ago. My wife had died in a car accident and I was caring for my two little boys. Rita made sure my laundry was done each time, but more importantly she was kind, understanding and a good listener. She always had a warm smile and gentle words. We became friends and I looked foreword to seeing her each week. She loved Joe & her family. God bless you Rita.
