Mrs. Rita was a very special person to everyone in our Church, she was our song leader for many years and had the voice of an Angel. I will love and miss her forever until we meet again. I pray for Bro. Bill, Debbie and all her other family members and friends that God will give everyone the peace and comfort that only He can give. I love you Mrs. Rita and you will be truly missed, I know you are singing for Jesus now, like you always loved to do, Betty.

This special lady has always treated me with love for almost 18 years now. From the time I began seeing her son Tony she welcomed me into her family and over the past few years we grew much closer and I will cherish every single memory of her. I lost my own mother in 2009 and she stepped in and treated me as one of her own and I will forever love and be great full to her for that. I will love and carry her and my cherished memories of her in my heart until we meet again one day. All my love always Mama Rita.
