To John and the rest of Rita's family,
We had the enormous pleasure of meeting Rita and the whole Rensel family for a memorable lunch at the Roycroft Inn. The closeness of your family was evident and a testament to Rita's strength and love. We send our deepest condolences.

I worked with Rita at Graphic Laminating and it was a privilege to know her.
Rita was always helpful, polite and kind. She never had a bad thing to say about anyone.
A truly good person.
I'm sorry I can't attend the wake, but please accept my sincere sympathy for your loss.
