My heart has been heavy many weeks now as I prayed for y'all everyday, and will continue to do so. I know this journey is hard, but I do know God is faithful!! Our families have shared many wonderful times and have precious memories. Rita was a special friend to me and helped me in so many ways, (I still use many recipe cards she gave me)! Rita loved her family dearly!! I am so very sorry ,but hold on to each other!! Sending love, prayers and hugs to all of you!! Carol Powell💕

I've known Rita's sister Lynda since 2nd grade. Lost touch for awhile. When we reconected at 20, I realized that Rita and her husband Bob was my Sunday School teachers at First Babtist Church of West Hollywood , FL. I have and always will remember those days because, they made those rough days at home a little easier on Sundays. Hope your days are easier now.
