I have so many great memories and stories about Rita. She was so kind hearted and a true friend to me. She was always there for me with anything I need or don’t need. She gave me some great advice and make me a better Leader in my job and always tell me to be strong and confidence in everything that I do. I can shared one funny story We went to lunch at Chili ‘s one days as we often do. When we were leaving the restaurant before we go back to work. She always need a cigarette, so as we were sitting outside she got the cigarette out of her purse and then I see her pull out this BIG lighter that most people use to light the BBQ pit with. We laughed so hard our stocmach hurt and tears came out of both of our eyes. I asked what the hell is she doing with that big lighter. She told me she ran out of the small one and that was the only thing she can grab getting out of the house that morning. The next time I saw her I gave her a dozen of lighters.
