I remember when Chris took me by to visit Aunt Rita, and to share with her some of the family history I had discovered. Rita was lovely, interested in what I had found, and happy to share stories of her early years. My favorite story was when she talked about how her three brothers decided to build a still up in the woods, hiding it from their father, and her father's reaction when he confronted his sons about it. She enjoyed baseball, worked in politics and traveled. She lived a full, amazing life. Rest in peace, Aunt Rita.
